    When sharing folders between the mac host and the windows vm, parallels uses SMBv1 from the early 90s. SMB version 1 send lots of extra messages and is less secure and efficient than modern versions, the current being 3.1.1. Is there a way to force Parallels to do sharing over a more recent version of SMB?

    Thanks
