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

 

Right click on the Chrome shortcut on your desktop or wherever you launch chrome from and click Properties. Add this to the target path: --disk-cache-dir="DirectoryWhereYouWantTheCacheToBeStored"

 

It should look something like this:

That is what I am doing. I could type anything seemingly for the path and it will not change. It always says invalid path. I tried just putting it somewhere else on C: and could not do that either.


This is what I tried:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --disk-cache-dir="R:\Chrome"

Tried it with an extra " at the end to just in case the first one needed to be closed, I don't really know how these work.

Where the properties says target put:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --disk-cache-dir="FOLDER LOCATION"

Also the folder name and path should not have a space anywhere. And you need to uncheck read only in the cache folder you make.

I have the target path correct I think. I noticed I cannot set the folder to read only. When I try it lets me know this will be applied to the folder and subfolders. After that, I see that read only is not checked anymore. After hitting ok and checking immediately after, it is read only again.

I installed RAMDisk but have a problems. Win7 64bit 8gb of ram. Using Sean's guide it says > 3. Set what you see in the screen shot below. Notice the drive is set to Unformatted. You will see why in a moment.
First there is no explanation of why? Why is that? Then by the tutorial > Create Temp directory but that is greyed out. The manual states this > >>>>>

Create TEMP directory: This option will create a TEMP directory in the RAM disk when
it is started. If you have selected an "Unformatted" disk on the "Settings" tab, this
option will not be available. This option is also not available if you have selected "Load
Disk Image at Startup". This option is useful if you want to locate your temporary files
directory on the RAMDisk disk.

The option will be greyed out by default if Unformatted is selected so what is the trick to do so?

Thanks

Looks like you forgot to attach a screenshot.

The RAMDISK, once created, will act like any other drive. You will have to format it in order to create a folder.

My problem was not being able to put check marks in the C Temp box & the one below. As it turns out I had to check them first then the others last. Never knew it took a special order.
I created a drive & formatted but it was empty. The guide is confusing to me because of the exact order.

6. Then you need to mount the drive and format it.
7. Start -> Control Panel -> System and Security -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management
8. Here you should now be greeted with a prompt that you have a new drive.
9. Mount the drive and quick format it NTFS or FAT32, give the name RamDrive and assign letter R.

It says mount the drive in step 6 then again in step 9. It never mentions removing it somewhere in between so it lost me there.
I did format & name it & was shown in disk management but even after a reboot it was an empty drive.
I can't assume the exact order things are done if there are grey areas. The drive should have some data on it correct?

You're confusing yourself...

Also, I didn't write that guide myself, it was just a copy paste, however I can't understand what is confusing you/how you are getting lost. Everything is straight forward.

Its not really straight forward because of the order. Not blaming you but step 9 should read > Now quick format it to NTFS or FAT32, give the name RamDrive and assign letter R.
That confused me because you can't mount the drive since you were already greeted with a prompt in step 8. Get it? It was already in place --
Should this drive be empty? After a reboot it was still an empty drive. My browser is not configured yet because I'm not sure it is working.
Also it did not put the backup inside the RamDisk program folder. It was shown on the outside at the bottom of program files. I'll try again & take a screen shot if necessary.

Mount is the same thing as initialize because you need to have the drive initialized in order to assign it a drive letter.
