I'm running Windows Media Center on Windows 7 Home Premium.
I have told WMC to use "E:\Recorded TV" as the place for saved recordings. So it is creating the hidden file "E:\Recorded TV\TempRec" as the place for the LiveTV buffers. I would like to use a ram disk for these buffers
;; created a 500MB ram disk called Z:
;; created a symbolic link
cd "Recorded TV"
mklink "TempRec" "Z:\buffers"
When I rebooted to start WMC ehome services and WMC the ram disk was still there, but the link on E: was gone and replaced with an actual directory holding the buffers.
