I'm running a ramdisk that I want to startup with specific permissions (e.g. need guest to have full access). I don't want anything that was written to this ramdisk to be saved across reboot - except the permissions for guest.
It would be nice if I could also have it be shared, but I have a workaround for that using ntfs junctions. I share a real disk and just link it to the ramdisk via a junction.
The goal is to be able to have a VMware virtual machine use this ramdisk as a shared network disk drive. I have it all working except that each time I reboot, I have to manually setup the guest permissions on the ramdisk. And that's what I want to automate.
Windows keeps the sharing status of a folder or drive separately. If you use a logon-time RAM Disk, Windows will reset the sharing status. You should use a boot-time RAM Disk instead, which is created early and Windows should keep its sharing status.
