Mounting RAMDisk to a folder   18 February 2016, 21:14

Hi

I have found Softperfect to be an awesome solution to my problem, but I am still stuck at one point. Is it possible to mount the RAM Disk to a folder instead of a Drive? Since it does not show in Disk Management, I can not create a mount point folder for it. Anyone have any ideas?

Unfortunately mounting to a folder is not possible. It has to be a drive letter due to how the software is designed.

If you check "hard disk emulation" checkbox in add/edit disk, then disk appears in disk management and can be mounted to a folder. Unfortunately, disk letter reappears after reboot, so this probably is not a solution for you, right? I suppose you want to move swap file / temp files to ramdisk and get rid of unneeded (and annoying) disk letter just as I do (=

An alternative would be to create a regular RAM Disk assigned to a drive letter. Then create a symbolic link from your folder to the RAM Disk.

Sometimes you can get the answer faster if you try the forum search and/or have a look at the software user manual to see if your question has already been answered.
