Having a couple Issues with RamDisk, this is my first time ever using it.

1. I followed the guide for it here and I set the size to 256Mb and its only 222Mb. Also when I opened the Disk management it asked if I wanted to set the ramdisk to GPT or MBR and it was auto selected to the GPT so I left it on that, not sure if that is correct or not.

2. After I formatted the ramdisk, on the disk management page it shows me this:

ramdisk.jpg

What is with the 2Mb partition? Just curious if that is normal also.

3. For some reason I also can not get AS SSD benchmark to work on it either. This is the error I am getting:

ramdisk2.jpg

So I'm just curious if I set anything up weird or not. I literally followed the Guide here completely. The only thing that wasn't described in the guide was selecting a GPT or MBR partition for the new "disk" in disk management.

IDK, I did the same as you and left it auto and just checked continue. I would back up the data on there if you even want to and start again.

Crucial free space trimmer
Quote:
I should point out that most people won't even ever need this! To function, it requires that you have trim working. If you already have trim working then by definition your free space is already trimmed by your past file deletes!

This is aimed at people who are in a position where they need to 'clean' the drive for performance reasons. The only reason to do this is if you've done a lot of writes in an environment that doesn't support trim and return to an environment that does. For example:
  • People that dual boot between Windows 7 and an OS that doesn't support trim.
  • Someone that has just re-installed Windows.
  • Someone that has just moved from a controller or driver that didn't support trim to one that does.
Even under those circumstances Garbage Collection will sort you out over time. So this is really only for people that have a need for it. It's not intended to fulfill a need you didn't know you had kind of thing!

Why couldn't you just have an intel system? lol

Anyways, maybe you should try not installing Windows via GPT and use MBR?

Grr still having the same issues with my RamDisk, maybe I should try to jack up the size of it to get AS SSD to work?
