I have quite strong QuadCore computer with 8GB RAM. Normally, my daily working basis uses nearly 6GB RAM. So 2GB more are waste. I often have to write installer script, try/test the setup, installer … which read/write a lot of files (7000 files, WTH)
So idea about RAM disk (from DOS era) come up!
Software to create RAM disk
1. ImDisk. TESTed on Win7
3. I use this DataRAM RamDisk
Install it is very simple.
Create/Start new disk in DataRAM
go to Computer Manager, Disk Management, format it and assign drive letter, Fix the drive character to R: for easily reference later.
Settings/DiskSize set to your need
Load and Save/Load Disk Image at Startup, Filename = C:\RAMDISK.img
Load and Save/Save Disk Image on shutdown, Filename = C:\RAMDISK.img
Option/Do not compress image file on NTFS filesystems
Using your ram disk
Redirect Chrome cache dir
Change your Chrome shortcut, change the Target to
C:\Users\ngng\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe –user-data-dir=”D:\LockeVN\ChromeLockeVNWorkProfile” –disk-cache-dir=”R:\Google\ChromeDev”
Change Win7 temp path
Go to environment of OS, redirect TEMP and TMP folder to ramdisk
