VPC 2004 Tip #8 - Enabling host disk cache under Virtual PC

Prima o poi bisognerà convincere quest'uomo a scrivere un libro sulla Virtual PC...

When you are running operating systems other than Windows NT / 2000 / XP / 2003 under Virtual PC you can gain a performance boost by enabling host side disk caching.  This is not enabled by default as it is not architecturally correct behavior - but I have seen situations where it can result in a 25% speed improvement in disk I/O intensive applications.

You can enable host disk caching by starting Virtual PC with the '-usehostdiskcache'.  This setting is then enabled globally on all virtual machines that you launch in that session.
