Thanks.

Quote: "If anything should require more space than is available in the temp directory (on RAM disk) the action will likely fail and Windows will report it ran out of disk space. The most likely scenario for this to happen is decompressing large archives of a few GB or more since Windows writes data temporarily to the Temp directory when it does so."
To avoid such a situation I'd like to have a DYNAMIC RAM disk. Is it possible with Softperfect ?
Thanks.

No, only a static RAM disk can be created.

Is there any RAM Disk Program that can do it?
Thanks.
