    I could very well be reading too much into this but I wanted to ask just in case.

    Relatively new Parallels user, even on Intel Macs. Now on an M1.

    I grabbed the Windows 10 Insider ARM preview, began installation and forgot to check the box to alter config prior to installation. I usually do this to isolate from the Mac and set separate Wi-Fi etc. So either way, once installed on the desktop there was the Mac Files desktop shortcut. I quickly realized what I did, shut down and corrected. Now once I brought it back up, and opened file explorer, the "recent files" list showed two files. Now I did not open these when Windows was on, nor did I open them anytime soon on the Mac itself.
    The only reason this was concerning is because these two particualr docs very much contained PII.

    So has anyone experienced a Windows VM having docs listed under Recent Docs that you have not opened?

    Thanks for any help.
