    I need Ram-Disk advice ( this the right section for this Question ? )


    I need Ram-Disk advice .


    My system specs are below. I guess the available ram is whats needed ? 8 GB total, 7 usable .

    I want to try two things :

    1. Set up my Browsers, Chrome and Edge, to save their browsing files to the Ram Disk .

    2. Run my Drawing application on the Ram-disk so that its lag free. It always slows down when drawing lines and painting .

    I'll post links to Ram-Disk makers I'd like to try for this :


    A. Ram-disk, by Dataram. OEM server memory upgrades. Dell, HP, IBM, Sun, Oracle, Windows, SQL Server Memory - Dataram


    C. SoftPerfect RAM Disk : high-performance RAM Disk for Windows

    Update

    seems its not worth doing on my system. since i had a crash from this. i might as well stop while i have a pc left .

    Personal opinion:
    I wouldn't bother with only 8gig of ram. Leave it for Windows and apps.
    If you had 16gig or better you could use it for cache files and/or scratch disks. I used to use one for Second life cache files to speed things up.
    Definitely wouldn't recommend trying to keep and run an application on one. If for some reason it doesn't restore after a reboot, the app is gone.
