That matches what i thought then.( the petrol head theory still applies).
Or-the power needs to be applied closest to where it is needed most and connected to it.
Translation =pure power and speed rules>Vmware or any other resource hungry program needs too "be in and run from" a location that can support that exclusively . i.e in the same way a primary OS needs to.
I also assume that this would generally mean the primary source dictates the outcome and that the only exception to that is files/dlls/etc not necessary to the functioning of "that " program can be called from a less efficient source/storage location.
Which is in my case is not only another drive but" the program itself is running from another drive". Yipes
Looks like i have to upgrade in the SSD dept
