Google Chrome, using either another HDD or RAM for all the temp data?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So here's the deal, It's been over a couple of weeks now since I've had my new SSD, and I was wondering, with all the limited reads and writes on these new SSDs, is there a way to move all of/set Chrome's temp internet data to either the RAM, ala Firefox, or to another HDD?

Sean Webster's optimisation guide for win 7 - moving steam to another drive - you could shift mozilla to another drive with a link shell extension?

I don't know if that would work, either way, there's gotta be a workaround for this, anybody?

Use the cache directory flag on the target of the properties of the Chrome Link ... --disk-cache-dir="path\to\folder"

For example on my wifes' windows 8 install the chrome shortcut on the desktop has this in the target box of the properties,

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