What if you allowed double quotes to delineate lines similar to what's allowed in Windows from a command line?

No, thanks for your interactions and the future update! I can't wait! My preconfigured folder layout has a number of folders that go pretty deep so if I can use that it will fix everything... and it will make SoftPerfect Ramdisk the fastest at-boot RAM disk software as I don't believe any other software has the ability to deploy a folder layout in advance of the OS without using an IMG file wh

Sorry, I should have stated that I was referring to the single line by itself: 1234567890\ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ\12345 That's just an example. If I add that line as it is, just that line alone, I will get error code 87. The issue is between the final 4 and 5, when the text goes over the line it will cause the error meaning I can't have a folder path that is greater than 42 characters

Andrew, thank you for taking the time to guide us to the issue. After going through my folder structure I diagnosed the problem - if the text is pasted into the text box past the boundaries the previously attached error will appear and you cannot get your folders. Sometimes. This issue is hard to reproduce perfectly, sometimes the next line will become another folder and sometimes it will

Ohh okay, I diagnosed the error - the interface doesn't like spaces. Is there a trick for creating folders with spaces? If this can work with spaces my problem is solved entirely as the boot time with the precreated folders is perfectly fast!

Andrew, I'd actually tried this at the start of my attempts and it refuses to do this. "Error adding/editing boot volume Win32 error code = 87 The parameter is incorrect"

QuoteAndrewbut there is really no point in keeping temporary files or browser caches between reboots. The problem is the folder structure. I'm using a 12GB .IMG file specifically for the pre-layed folder structure; Can we create nested folders in boot disks with the latest version? That would solve all my problems. ie. T:\Folder1, T:\Folder1\Nest1, T:\Folder1\Nest2, etc. Thank you for

Andrew, I am using a Boot Disk, see attachment. Hybrid boot / "Fast Boot" is disabled, referenced in another thread to advise another user. It's easier to disable it in the latest versions of Windows 10. Upon starting up the computer, the system takes a significant amount of time to load my user profile with this 'boot' disk and it's the same disk I was using in the previous ver

Prior to reformatting my system with a fresh install of Windows 10 and Softperfect RAM Disk 4.0.5, I had close to the same version of Windows 10 with an older version of Softperfect RAM Disk, I believe 4.0.3. I saved my 12GB RAM disk and carried it into this install, mounted it, but it takes more than a minute to mount the disk and the hard drive is heavily accessing. In fact, it's too useable to

@Roger:Try turning off Fast Startup (everyone should disable this anyhow, but it will probably fix your problem): -- I have this issue right now on a fairly fresh install of Windows 10 but I also had it prior to installing Softperfect RAM Disk. My temporary files are following the user profile path %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Temp so I don't think it's that. I haven't spent any time invest

QuoteAndrew Then you can choose a file system and have folders automatically created upon initialisation. This would be my preferred solution but the inability to create nested folders renders this feature useless for me.

How to create RAMDisk to auto-load with folders every boot

I just purchased the software and I'm a bit frustrated with the interface as it's far less intuitive than something like Dataram RAMDisk / ATI RAMDisk, and may not even offer the capability I purchased it for. Here's how I'm using Dataram's Ramdisk: - create RAM drive - pre-create folders like X:\Users\myname\Temp, X:\Users\myname\Temporary Internet Files, X:\Temp, etc. - save RAMDisk.IMG
