How to: Set up and Utilize RAM Disks - Page 25

post #241 of 325
OK thanks but let me ask again> Should this drive be empty once initialized & after a reboot? It was formatted -initialized & rebooted. I do not know is why I'm asking.
I will take a screen shot on where the backup is placed if its a problem.

When you instialize it and format and assign a letter it will not have any data on it as you ddidnt put anything on it. If you do put data and reboot then it should have the data still there after the reboot if you set it to save the image at shutdown and load at start up.

That is what I thought. I made the drive 2gb & put load on start & save on shutdown & rebooted. In my computer it shows no files. I took a screen shot where its placed. It is not in C>program files x86> ramdisk as shown in the screen shot. It shows the size but no files are there. Is that normal? The file will not open as shown. When I click on it it gives an option to burn to disk - confusing. I thought about moving it to the program but not sure.

Nothing unusual there.

ImDisk's image files are the same size as the total capacity of the ramdrive, even if nothing is inside it. Also, .img is an extension shared by many programs, including some optical media creators/editors/mounters; this is why you are seeing what you see when you r-click the file.

Moving the file won't change anything about how it works.

OK thanks, I'll assume its OK but may never get it to work without more help. The guide in step 6 for FF says --- 6. Type in R:\FF_Cache in the "string value" [if R: is the RamDisk and you created a folder called FF_Cache]. I never created a folder called -- FF_Cache. Why would the guide assume I did & if I did where does it go? I appreciate guides but when its assumed most know this is where guides fall short. I'm stuck & don't want to kill my browser or make a mistake.

I showed the example. It says

for a reason. Because I thought readers on this forum would have enough common sense to figure out that it was simply an example and they are to make their own folder.

Lol, yeah. That guy needs to be spoonfed.
post #249 of 325
Well it went passed me but I found the complete guide less omissions. Anyway I'm still not sure it really works plus the folder is checked read only. I cleared the box & hit apply but went back later & its still checked. The unexpected keep happening.
