Re: RAM disk .IMG file corruption

QuoteAndrewIt's a little complicated with writing into two image files. We use partial writing where an image is divided into 2 MB blocks and only changed blocks are written back to the image. For example, if you had a 1 GB image and only a couple of small files were changed, all we need to write is 2-4 MB of the changed blocks rather than the entire image. This greatly reduces SSD's wear-and-tear

Hello and thank you for your reply. The Windows 10 configuration has remained pretty much the standard one and no programs like CCleaner or similar have ever been installed. Unfortunately, also, the suggested method of accessing the corrupted image file by mounting it with OSFMount v2 does not work. I suppose that the corruption problem is not with the data in the ramdisk, but occurs when wr

I have tested SoftPerfect RAM Disk 4.2.0 demo on different computers but with identical configuration, so that it saves its contents in a 1 GB .img file on a separate non-boot drive with the options "Save contents to image" and "Save contents to associated image every 60 minutes". The RAM disk contains the Firefox browser profile and is formatted with the NTFS filesystem on Win

QuoteAnnIs there a particular reason why you want to create a temporary folder in a non-volatile image file and then automatically delete it each time? The Firefox profile takes up about 150 MB, but the RAMdisk size should be at least twice that amount of space for future needs. The user's Temp folder have varying space requirements depending on what data is put inside it. Instead of creating a

Hello to all the SoftPerfect's community. I am using SoftPerfect RAM Disk so that it saves the contents to an .img file that contains the Firefox browser profile and the user's Temp folder. Is there a way to delete and recreate the Temp folder on each reboot without having to place it in a volatile RAM disk? Thank you.
