Ramdisks

  1. Anyone of you ever use them?

    I have a 50M ramdisk for browsers cache and other temporary files. For things like that, they're quite neat :). Speeds up browsing quite a lot.
    Of course, the data is lost when rebooting if the ramdisk app doesn't have an option to save the contents to hdd (mine does) but like I said, it's good for temp files. And I don't reboot often ;).

    Yes but the rest of us M$ Windoze users do unfortunately.

    But I might have to look into that option. Seems like a neat idea.

    Actually, my Windows 2000 server isn't rebooted often. Only really in the event of a big configuration change or a hardware change.

    Ramdisks can be pretty neat, yes.

    Yes but for the average person running that M$ crap we have to reboot once every week at least........The longest I have gone is 2.5 weeks, and I think my computer wanted to blow up. Go figure.

    I'm working on making a "Live" Windows CD which will use a ram disk to store anything that needs to be written to (i.e registry). Is anyone interested in this project? If so, any suggestions?
