Please try new beta release and share your feedback. Don't forget to uninstall previous version of RAM disk before installing the new one.

Did you uninstall previous version of RAM Disk before installing this beta? What is "HDD Compatibility mode"? Did you mean "Hard disk emulation mode"? Was it turned on for the RAM disk during backup? It should be turned on as only this mode can work correctly with VSS.

QuoteI'm trying this beta version with the Hard Disk Emulation on now. Seems the IE 10 flash player problem has fixed. My main concern now is the beta version seems slower than the previous stable version. Hard disk emulation mode is slower than direct I/O mode, it's by design, but there is a plan to slightly decrease this performance degradation in future releases.

QuoteDoes the new version have options on the menu/system tray icon to manually write to image file and refresh ramdisk from image file? In other words, an option to manually sync ramdisk and image file. There are no such options at the moment. And they are not expected to be implemented until the current beta release is properly tested and becomes stable.

QuoteHowever.. trying to find out where the limit is, the RAMDisk size I'm able to create will shrink with every try. I'm now unable to create a RAMDisk larger than ~2400MB, and with every new try, the max. size goes even lower than that. Please, specify how much of physical memory is not freed after every attempt, in megabytes? Also, what are exact parameters that you specify for RAM-disk in th

It is expected in the upcoming version. > I also have considered using the AutoSave functionality included with RAMDISK, but this is less ideal because ideally I would like to only write the deltas with each backup, not the entire RAMDISK. Autosave feature supports differential flush in the latest release.

Re: How to put Page file on the RAMDisk

QuoteIs it possible to put my page file on the RAMDisk? Yes, but generally it is not a good idea. QuoteCan we do something that RAM disk gets mounted before Windows startup to prevent this error? Use boot-time RAM disk instead of logon-time.

That's the way it is at the moment. Integration with system components such as Device Manager or Disk Management will be implemented soon. Keep an eye on the new releases.

This is from the manual: "The Save Contents to Image option writes the current RAM disk's contents to the associated image file on shutdown".

Use "Save contents to image" option in the "Add/Edit disk" dialog.

Can you attach your memory dump and the list of modules that are running on your 7 x64 system? Without such information it's pretty hard to identify and fix the problem. Also think about drive Z: - which applications can use or access it for any purposes?

Oh, sorry, forgot to say: before booting the system you must disable verification of digital signatures for drivers by pressing F8 just before the "Starting Windows" string on the black screen appears and select "Disable driver signature enforcement". This is because the updated module was not yet signed (it can't be signed right now). This must be done this time only, to be ab

Please try the updated module for x64 systems. Download and copy it to the application's installation folder, typically C:\Program Files\Softperfect RAM Disk (confirm overwrite if asked), then reboot system and try mount your image once again. Thank you for your feedback.
