RamDisk98 v1.1 Description:
RamDisk98 supports much larger disks than Microsoft's RAMDRIVE.SYS, which is limited to 32 Megabytes.
RamDisk98 is the only RAM disk driver that lets you create a bootable disk image in RAM. You can make the disk bootable with the SYS command. In addition, RamDisk98 can be configured to automatically load a disk image at startup and save the image to disk at shutdown. This allows the RAM disk to function almost exactly like a hard disk. It is ideal for creating disk images for bootable CD-ROMs. You can even have a label and a TEMP directory for the RAM disk.
The RamDisk98 drive can also be compressed using Windows DriveSpace. For RAM disks configured as hard disks, RamDisk98 can be configured to allow the user to select the drive letter.
An autosave feature, if enabled, saves the contents of the RAM disk to a disk image file at a user-determined time interval. This allows extra safety against losing valuable information in the RAM disk in the event of a system hang or power failure.
RamDisk98 is useful for running any application that does a lot of disk input and output (i/o), such as a database or compiler, or it can be used to hold your Web browser's cache.
