and this is why I don't understand why anyone would ever turn off the PF - there are no downsides to leaving it enabled, but you can see issues if you turn it off (but I don't really want to get into that debate again and derail this thread!)

I'm finally done with the performance tests.
I guess all that's left to do is write a summary with the pros an cons of each software.

Damn, I keep thinking of new things to test.
Like for the programs that just dump their content to memory on the RAMDisk save, they probably wouldn't if Write-caching was disabled on the backup drive.
I'm also curious if different cluster size would make any difference in performance.

Great job!

Which one is your favorite? At the moment I like SoftPerfect RAMDIsk.

Yes SoftPerfect RAMDIsk is by far the best free RAMDisk and it's very easy to use.

I'm using WinRamTech (which technically can also be free, although it does expire every 4 months) so I can use exFAT and get similar performance to FAT32 without the file size limit.

But's that's only because I don't use the backup feature. If I did I would either go with SoftPerfect or pay for Primo RAMDisk.

Seems like Dataram RAMDisk just had a pretty major update, I might have to give it another look.

Pretty good performance improvement for Dataram.

4.0.5.RC0

4.1.0.RC25


They've also reduced image load/save time by almost 50%, bringing them more in line with other RAMDisks.
But they still save the whole image on driver unload when no changes have been made to the image and still claim that they do not..

All in all a good update, I've moved to the good performance group.
