Parallels Desktop 6 for Mac OS

I recently set up Parallels Desktop 6 for Mac. Essentially so that I don't have to switch to and fro between Mac OS and Windows 7. However upon setting up, and the VM window appearing, my Hard Drive Inspector software came up on Windows 7 (VM) and stated that the hard drive or machine was in critical condition. Now I don't know whether HD Pro becomes dysfunctional when through VM or it really is in critical condition. Another HDD reader HDTune Pro also cannot make a single reading when I enter windows 7 through VM.

I have a memory of 8gb DDR3, of which I have allocated 4gb to VM. The HDD free space on Mac is more than 250, whereas on Windows is 95gb. So wonder how I can resolve this or should I just ignore the Hard Drive Professional readings?

I have attached the Hard Drive Professional Screen for help.

its likely because hd pro, does not understand or can ascertain the health of a virtual disk, which should always be 100 percent virtually ok.

eg no smart detection.
I would agree with hanccocka.

So, I would ignore and uninstall HD Pro, because your not going to get any problems with a virtual disk.
