I am using VMWare Workstation 12 Pro and have noticed that my physical hard drive runs at 100% when viewed in the Task Manager's Performance tab.  It's a 7200 RPM WD Black and my PC is an AMD 8350 with 32 GB of RAM; my OS is Windows 10 Pro.

Is this normal?  I don't think it was this bad when I was trying out Hyper-V.
