Store data from a virtual machine on virtual drive or "real" hard disc?

Store data from a virtual machine on virtual drive or "real" hard disc?

I am preparing to work with virtual machines only on my next PC (which should arrive this wk). (Planning to use virtualbox under Solaris, mainly to virtualize Win XP + Win7-environments).

"Having a shared virtual drive is probably not the best idea, simply because you can't really share it with more than one machine at a time.

You are much better off using the shared folder capability of VirtualBox and keeping the files on the host if at all possible."
