Command line switches
There is a set of command line switches that you can use to create, delete and manipulate RAM disks. These can be used as ramdisk.exe /switch:data.
Note that these commands work with a running GUI instance of RAM Disk. To create an on-demand RAM disk from a service or script, use the console version called ramdiskc.exe located in the application folder. Any RAM disk created with the console version is not visible in the GUI and disappears upon shutdown.
