I am running Parallels 3.0 (build 5608) on a 15"" 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro (latest version) with 2GB of memory.
I have had no problems with running Windows XP Pro in Parallels but have been offered a free upgrade to version 4.0
I have two questions:
a) Is it worth upgrading? There have been a lot of posts on forums describing problems with the upgrade. Have they solved these with version 3810? Can you supply latest instructions on how to upgrade (there are so many different suggestions on the net) ?
b) My Parallels folder in OSX has a size of 30.64GB. If I run Parallels and Windows and look, in Windows Explorer, at the C: drive I see it is about half full (15.9 used space, 15.3 free space) Am not sure how big the partition is - how can you see this - do you run Disk Utility?
Is it true that you don't need to worry about it as Parallels automatically resizes the partition as the data increases? If not, how can I tell how big it is and how much free space do I need?
