Lol. Done that before too. I set the server to do a backup of the ramdisk wvery 30 minutes so at most only a half hour of work would be lost if there was a power outage. Once a day I also backed up the backup to a separate drive too. However, doing this ins't as cool as you (Or I) think. Like I said, the server files only take up 1-2GB at most. The actual data while running and what is in RAM can be huge though. A solid state drive can load everything so quickly that you will never see a performance difference on the server between running the server on a SSD vs a ramdisk.


When I said 128GB SSD, I was thinking you would have a regular HDD for a mian drive and your most important games and MC would be on a SSD, that is how most people do it. If all you want is a single 256GB SSD then that is fine too.


Another thing to remember is that once you have this all set up and going you will want to set the MC server process priority to either "above average" or "high" so that the server always takes priority over another game you are playing. That will keep your player base happy because you wont give them a bunch of lag when you start playing something else with the server is the background.

Thanks for all of the help. I would have never thought to change the priority settings.
