I need a switch to unmount ram drive then immediately mount again, which combines two switches - unmount and mount. the advantage is I can put it in task scheduler.

What would be the benefits a unmount/mount cycle? In other words, for what purpose you are doing this?

That is for privacy, erasing browsers' cache files, index.dat and history.

This actually sounds like a bad idea. If you put this in a scheduler, it may happen when the web browsers are open, which may well crash them or destabilise the system.

If you still want to do it, simply create a .BAT file with the following contents and launch this file from a scheduler:

"c:\Program Files\SoftPerfect RAM Disk\ramdiskws.exe" /force /unmount:all
"c:\Program Files\SoftPerfect RAM Disk\ramdiskws.exe" /mount:all

Assuming you are referring to Internet Explorer 11, it can be done the same way as in any other version

ie11 is using webcache01.dat instead of index.dat. it store visited sites from day 1, it is hidden at C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WebCache\. have to use dos dir to see them. it just not move to ramdisk.

In that case you can move WebCache folder to the RAM drive manually and then use Link Shell Extension application to create symbolic link for it in the C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows directory.

Thanks VD, I try to move the folder by dos. it said locked by some process. linked shell is new to me, I need to study it. also, I'm not a pro. if it is easy for you, can you drop some lines?
