VMWare player drag drop between virtual machines freezes one of them

I am doing some testing and developing, using 2 virtual machines and I need to frequently move data between them. I figured easy way is to drag and drop from one directly to the other.
This was working fine until the source VM froze. I couldn’t even switch to it. or interact with it in any way.
I restarted all the vmware services to no avail.
Then I looked at the processes and notice vmware-unity-helper. :lightbulb:
Killed the process and everything went back ton normal.

PS: to all those who are watching my vmware related posts: in a about a month from now I’ll set up my first personal ESXi (I have one at work). That will be GOLD 😉
