ram Drive ?

Postby marklonardo » Thu Sep 02, 2010 2:04 pm

I need to implement a RAM Drive across platforms (xp,vista,win7). The Drive will hold a document securely in que and if the user crashes the system the drive ends along with its que.

You can a free utility like ImDisk to create a RAM drive:

If the system crashes, don' you lose everything in a ram drive? Its volatile memory after all.

Also, true ram drives typically require a device driver and administrative access to install them.

true, but that is the goal. I want to encode/decode large pdf files in a ram disk to speed up the process. If the user crashes the system they will not have access to the decoded document which is a plus for protecting the document. The software will run on company laptops so I can gain access to rights as needed. Right now I decode the files in a folder on the users hard drive then immediately delete it after opening it which works but large documents are slow to open. I will investigate imdisk, the command line tool might do what I want. Thanks for your help.
