Hello VMware developers, can you please fix VMware Workstation 10 so that I can continue using the other VMs I have open after I have deleted a snapshot? There is a cleaning up deleted files message that takes like 20 minutes a snapshot . So for 20 minutes I can't use my VMs or anything. That's ridiculous! Change from the modal window please so I can minimize the window and continue working. I have 6 VMs open right now and I can't interact with any of them until this is done. Thank you.
Why do not use the built-in OS connectivity functions like VNC, SSH, RDP or a 3rd-party-product like Teamviewer to work inside a guest?
I understand the console as the last option if a guest has a BSOD, kernel Oops, PSOD or if I have to make some administrative changes to virtual machines (snapshot, change in virtual hardware etc).
I'm the only one with this problem?
No, you're not the only, but since I started using SSDs a couple of years ago, deleting a snapshot typically takes no longer than a couple of minutes now so the delay has become less of an annoyance for me. I do agree with that they should fix it (if they can) but it may not be easy depending on how the Workstation UI is designed. Personally for me, I there are many other problems with a higher priority that should be fixed first.
We agree it is annoying, and it something that we have long wanted to improve. In the meantime, you could drag the VM tab out to open it in a separate window before deleting snapshots in that VM.
