When u add the image you will have the option to save it, u can also configure it to save it frequently not only with the shut downs...

But it would be nice for larg ram disks to have more time so it can finish saving the image before it gets corrupted while not being able to finish the transfer...

I'm at this screen, when you choose where to save the image it asks you to open a SoftPerfect Volume Image.

Here it is how to create and setup a ram disk using SOFTPERFECT

While its mounting the ISO of the ram disk on the bottom right side of the menu there is an option that says "ADVANCE" there you can setup how many minutes do you want SOFTPERFECT to save your image

cheers

So it is safe to say that Softperfect is the fastest?

In the raymond tests, why was disc bond considered not the fastest when it was clearly the fastest among the benches?

I've only tried ImDisk and SoftPerfect, the later being faster, but they're both insanely fast compared to a SSD.

Ok ,I have a ramdisk showing on "my computer".

It does not show up in disk management and it has been formatted....thru rt click.

It does not show up on ASSD benchmarking tool

I used the instructions in for caching the browser in Sean's Browser Cache instructions and have this screenshot to show what I have

So far FF doesn't seem any faster ...so I'm guessin' I need some instruction tongue.gif

Thanks Gary. Does it look like I have it set up correctly? I mean do the files in my "R drive" look like they are supposed to ? How do I go about benching as it "R" doesn't show up in ASSD.

edit: I have 12 gb RAM installed now. Should the 1.25gb being used for RamDisk be subtracted from that figure/ Mine still shows 12 gb as per Computer...manage

edit again: Can't get the folder in ramdisk to stay unchecked on read

edit once more: I now have only 10+ gb left on my C Drive ,should have 25 gb...Time to start over?

No ! When you added the 8GB of RAM, Windows upped your page file by another 8GB smile.gif

I'd go and change it to 4096MB

Also, it might have upped you hibernation space too!
And if you don't use hibernation, turn it off in command prompt smile.gif

Click start, search for command, click command prompt, input,
powercfg /hibernate off and hit enter smile.gif

Hey Sean, I ran across this at work and thought you should know about it as it effects current and previous versions of dataram ram disk(junk). I'm going to paste the relevant part of the email as its important for anyone that may be using it.
