Fusion 5 Migration Time
I am in the trial period of VMWare Fusion 5. My question is about migration time.
I had tried out Parallels 8 and created a VM of a bare load of Windows 7 (Took standard Win7 load times which are very quick). The image is 9GB.
I decided to give Fusion 5 a try and loaded it up, but instead of a new VM I told it to migrate the parallels VM. It worked fine....10 hours later. Was surprised it took so long for such a small VM conversion.
I also tried to do Windows 7 PC to VM migration, and after 4 hours if it showing "Copying Disks....." a Progress bar....and words below it "Calculating Time Remaining" which never went away before I had finally stopped things.
Question 1) How long should it take to Migrate a PC with about 50GB of data and how long to convert a Parallels VM?
Question 2) Is Parallels faster or are they both slow?
Thanks in advance for your help.
