comment is it safe to unplug a USB drive while Windows is in sleep/hibernate/off mode?
Hibernate is worse if you're using NTFS. It will cause data loss. see superuser.com/questions/39532/…

comment Does virtualbox support hot adding memory?
@allquixotic, unfortunately the host is OSX. Added that to the question.

The guest's swapfile is on an SSD mounted directly to the VM, not a virtual drive, so the host OS doesn't get a chance to cache it. The swapping only happens intermittently, when the guest is serving unrelated requests. This causes the processing to come to a near-halt until the other job finishes, but forward progress is still happening.
