so, I'm taking a college course on computer management. We use VMware allot in the class. Anyways, my professor told us we should NOT be running our virtual machines off of our portable hard drives / flash drives. But we should be transferring our VM to the desktop every time we want to run it.. Then save it back to the hard drive / flash drive when done.
Is this true? Is it not recommended to run a VM off a flash drive device? Why?
I myself have a portable SSD and it's very reliable. So I'd love to run my VM on that if its safe.
