    I'm just wondering: since SSDs can age and degrade by too heavy writing and reach their lifetime possible prematurely, does Parallels take any particular care on this in a way that SSDs are treated safely? Or is it responsibility of the guest OS running in the VM?

    Hi @ChristophK2, performance has been significantly improved if your external drive is an SSD drive connected to your Mac by Thunderbolt. But it is Guest OS responsibility in terms of SSD lifetime.
