Hi Dave,

What is the configuration of your guest and your Host OS?
What exactly is slow? The performance or the Disk copy speed?

I need some more info.. What does your virtual environment look like?  What are the specs on the host and what are the resources you have allocated to the VM?

core i7's 16 gigs of ram ... windows 7 is the base physical OS processor is capable of virtualization virtualized intel vt-x\ept   1 or 2 processors per VM ... usually running 2 VM's at a time sometimes up to 4 .... but the slow down is not respective to the # of VM's running ... it seems totally random ... .     the slow down wasn't present in VMWare 9

VM's consist of Win8, Win Server 2012, linux, win xp, etc....
