I was playing around one night on the computer with some large video files and things were taking a bit of time. Being large and working off a mechanical HDD, I remembered back to the days when you could use the old DOS RAMDrive.sys to create a RAM drive using system memory.
This led me to search the interwebs for a tool that would allow this in windows 10. That’s when I found ImDisk ToolKit. ImDisk Tool kit, loads a driver that lets you create a RAM drive.
I wont go into specifics because I think once you run the app to create a ram drive, it will be fairly self explanitory.
This tool will let you mount image files of hard drive, cd-rom or floppy, and create one or several ramdisks with various parameters.
This all-in-one package includes the ImDisk Virtual Disk Driver (2.0.9), the DiscUtils library that extends the number of supported image file formats, and adds several GUIs and features.
Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 or 10 (32 or 64-bit).
Some image file formats also require .NET Framework 4 (included in Windows 8 and later) to be mounted with the DiscUtils library.
- Ramdisk with optional dynamic memory management
- Image file mounting, many formats supported
