Re: RAM Disk contents advice: what to put inside / when to save it

2 years ago, by jose hidalgo in RAM Disk Forum

radish, I hope you're still listening. My RAM Disk is now up and running, and so far everything is working perfectly, partly thanks to you! I'm using the .bat files like you suggested. Actually I am using .bat files (e.g. word.bat) AND shortcuts to them (e.g. "Word" shortcut with the right icon, since icons can be changed easily on shortcuts). I have added "explorer" to

Re: Creating a RAM Disk for Firefox and Chrome profile folders

Again, we have already discussed this before. Placing the pagefile on a RAM Disk is a good idea, because some of the premises on that article (that I've already read months ago) are simply false. Because all Microsoft systems don't work exactly the way they're supposed to, unfortunately. I won't be the first nor the last to place my pagefile on a RAM Disk. The point in saving caches is h

Folders and subfolders

Hi, Just to be sure... Here's a picture from RAM Disk manual: Let's assume that I want to create a Folder\Subfolder structure. What should I type exactly in the "Create Folders" dialog ? Option 1 : Folder\Subfolder Option 2 : Folder Folder\Subfolder Option 3 : I don't know, please tell me ^^ Thanks.

Hi Andrew Actually we already had this discussion here. But now I have received my SSD and I'm about to begin the install! In our discussion I was thinking of having 3 RAM Disks : - pagefile.sys : never saved - Caches : saved on exit/reboot - Profiles : saved often on SSD (incrementally since RAM Disk image writes are incremental) I'm still undecided about the 3rd one (profiles), but Ra

Creating a RAM Disk for Firefox and Chrome profile folders

2 years ago, by jose hidalgo in RAM Disk Forum

Hi everybody, I'd like to create a RAM Disk of about 500 MB, and copy my Firefox and Chrome profile folders (located in my bootable SSD) with a batch script run at every Windows startup, in order to speed up navigation. However this is not easy: 1. I need to make a PERFECT COPY of my profile folders (all the files, folders and subfolders, but also all file attributes, permissions, R/W, hidd

radish, I've just read your method, and I think it's AMAZING ! This is exactly what I was looking for, and I'll make sure to implement this in my fresh Windows 10 install (which has been delayed a bit, it shall take place around september 20th, just in time for Firefox 64 bit ! Yay ! ). Thank you so much, and feel free to share other tips if you have them ! These are really useful for eve

QuoteAndrewThe Save on Exit / Reboot option already exists when an image is attached - that's what Save Contents to Image does. Oh, I get it now ! So I guess I'll have this : - R: for the swap file (contents never saved) - S: for all the caches ("save contents to image" so they only get saved on exit/reboot to HDD), maybe also for %TEMP%, and then I'll clean %TEMP% from time to time

Re: RAM Disk contents advice: what to put inside / when to save it

Great ! So what do you think of these two additional options to fix the %TEMP% problem ? - "Save only on exit / reboot" - "Don't save files older than..." This would allow the %TEMP% folder to remain almost empty ("Don't save files older than...", but it would also allow its contents to be saved on exit/reboot, for those programs who need a reboot to finish their i

Thanks Andrew, your reply is most interesting. About the linked article, it's funny because I had read it before creating this topic (yes, the 30 pages, lol). I still think that when you have enough RAM there are no downsides in creating a RAM Disk for pagefile. A number of people in that long thread have found it useful, probably because of Windows flaws that make the pagefile be written eve
