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

Thanks Gary thumb.gif I'm back in business now. biggrin.gif

Well yeah. I'm currently using Primo RAMDisk which is faster than an SSD, yes, but I'm looking fot even faster software for this application.

I will appreciate it much if you can confirm if softperfect is the best one around?

I found this online: http://www.raymond.cc/blog/12-ram-disk-software-benchmarked-for-fastest-read-and-write-speed/

 

If you want you can test them for yourself too with CrystalDiskMark.

You are not going to notice any performance difference btw any RAM disk software in use.

Regardless of any performance difference, I still am looking for the fastest.

Why bother? Why not just use one that works well for you that you like the layout and control of?

I have my RAMdisk all setup but I'm having trouble with the Chrome caching instructions. I can not change the path to anywhere on my RAMDisk or my actual disk. My target path looks a little different then what I guess is assumed in the OP but the flag does not seem to be working.

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"
