I run Parallels Desktop on my MacBook Pro to host Windows based virtual machines. I am trying to make the virtual disks a small as possible, and ran across this article: Delete hiberfil.sys by disabling Windows Hibernate function
Because I use the
Virtual Machine - Suspend feature of Parallels, I think I can save the virtual disk space by disabling this feature. The
hiberfil.sys is sized to the RAM size, so it is a significant savings.
The question is if there is a downside to this, or if there is something I am missing with this approach?
