I have just created a VM with Windows 7 which I hope to use as my Developer machine. While creating the VM with VM Player, I picked the option where the contents of Hard Disk will be stored as Multiple Files (I quite do not recollect the exact words of the option that I picked).
All of the earlier machines that I built using VM Player have always had the Single File as a Hard Disk.
Now, I am not an infrastructure person at all. So, I really do not know which is the best option for my purpose.
I still have not installed any software in it. I plan to install the following -
- Visual Studio 2010 (To Learn ASP.NET MVC)
- SQL Server 2008 (To Learn SSIS)
- Will either of the options make a difference in what I am going to be using it for?
- Should I have picked the Single Disk option? If so, why. If not, why not?
