I am currently forced to use Parallels (windows emulator) to run widows 7, because bootcamp/mbr will not work on my disk they way it is partition.

I know  I will eventually get a second computer but in the mean time does anyone know

if there are any risks running TRC and PPC (or any client) in parallels on osx,


OR is it in fact safer to run clients this way as I can cordon of what drives on OSX any application ruining in windows on  parralles can access and thus what any malicious software can access in the Parallels.

It's much safer, especially if you only use your windows VM for these tasks, assuming you used an original windows disc to install the OS and not a cracked download. Why didn't you use Linux in the VM though? I would have thought that was the safest possible option, assuming the cryptocoin clients can be compiled.....

Yeah good point I am not sure that the Linux compiles always work....the always seem to hit a snag eg, this doesn complie, your not authorised , flie missing. etc etc

There should be no risks. Just make a backup. Otherwise it's actually even more safe as everything is running 'sandboxed'.

more or less retired.
