I have had problems trying to use VM images on an Integral 512Gb external ssd with USB3. My new Dell Latitude E6230 has two USB3 ports. I was on VMPlayer 4.0.4 which works extremely well when the VM image is on the internal ssd drive, but slowed to a crawl when I I tried to use the external ssd attached to either of the USB3 ports. I mean suicidally slow. I got all excited when I read one of the other articles here:
I immediately updated to VM Player 5.0.2 and waited expectantly. I first checked that I had the same high speed response with the same VM image copied to the internal ssd. However, I was extremely disappointed that the improvement on the external ssd (and a Lexar USB3 128Gb memory stick as well) was marginal at best.
Please can someone help me? While I can obviously use the internal ssd, its only got 256Gb so with all the other bloatware I have to use (Microsoft of course the main problem) there isn't that much space for all but a few smallish VM images.
I look forward to some assistance.
