Oh ok. Is it OK for you to try using DataRAM RAMDisk for me and check "do not create backup image" and see if it does not get corrupted? Because I unchecked that (default) and now it doesn't get corrupted but I want to check that to avoid double space on my SSD.
If I set it to load Disk Image at start up before making the RAM disk and don't have a RAM disk then I get that message. But Once the RAM disk is created and you have a saved iso of it then when you start it up you will not have the issue.

Set up SyncToy to back-up the RAMDrive every half hour and added a Task Scheduler event to save the RAM drive on Shutdown/Restart and reload on login biggrin.gif

Nice!

Nice!

It's working like a dream right now, thanks again for the great guide. I highly recommend a RAM drive for the following:
- webserver
- game server
- incomplete torrents
- files you want to share on the network



Just be sure to set up something like Synctoy and set a task to back up the RAM drive on shutdown and reload it on startup.

That's actually not my issue, I already understood that error message so no worries.

My issue here is that when I check the "do not backup....." in Options tab, I get a corrupted RamDisk drive when I restart my computer. Can you reproduce the same problem?

nope i have no issue
post #85 of 325
Ok, now I don't know what to do. Any more ideas in mind? I don't like to have that backup file since it takes up double the space in my SSD to use RamDisk if I leave that option unchecked.

Really? Your guide says to put it on drive C and I was assuming that you have an SSD as your OS drive (C), right?

Ok. Why do you have it setup in the HDD? Won't that slow things down?

Depends on how often he restarts. I have mine stored on my SSD, but my rig is on 24/7 so it wouldn't really matter anyway.
