So, I recently installed Zorin 11 on a Virtual Machine. I had put exactly 1 GiB of memory on it. Now, my PC has 8 GiBs. I know hat while the VM is running, my host machine will only be able to use the 7 remaining GiBs. But, while the VM isn't running will this 1 GiB of RAM still be unusable?

 

Thanks :)

If you "stop-close" the VM all resources go back to your host (= your real OS).

 

PS: Zorin would be much happier with 2 GB of RAM...  :wink:

Thanks! Yeah, I didn't make sense to sill deny the resources, but I asked just to be safe...

I noticed some lag with just one GiB. I added another, and now it runs smooth as butter.

This is the first working VM I've had, and I'm so exited! 

 

Thank You.

Indeed, VM's open a whole new world of unlimited testing with very little chance of breaking your main OS...
