Currently I'm noticing a horrible performance when I put my VM's on my internal HDD. The HDD is split into 3 Partitions (D:, E:, F:) and have a maxiumum capacity of 500GB by 7200rpm.
File copy from the M.2 SSD to the HDD and vice versa is pretty fast (around 115 MB/s) but as soon as I start a VM the usage stuck between 98% - 100%. For now I have no idea what is causing the behaviour and I don't know if this is normal.
Further more information about the host system:
- OS: Windows 10 1809
- CPU: i5-8250U (yes, it is a laptop)
- RAM: Single Bank 8GB DDR4 2400MHz
- SSD: M.2 Samsung EVO860 (256GB)
- HDD: 500GB 7200rpm (about 8 - 10 years old)
- Hypervisor: VirualBox
For any idea I would be thankfull.
