Vmware makes my system crash

When I use vmware, my system is fine. But when the virtual machine uses disk (e.g. copying files), my whole host freezes.
Could you help?

Memory: 3.63 GiB used: 2.56 GiB (70.7%)

this will be the issue … it runs out of memory

Of ram, you say?
It should use swap…

What do you mean by “privacy”? What private infos did I enter?

uncleaned journals including a lot of data like UUIDS IP addresses filenames username

you can try setting swappiness:

But running VM with limited RAM will not be smooth as host will need already around 2 GB to run fine… try to use a low value for the VM too can help… or consider using virtmanager or qemu itself…
