What is RAMDisk? How to Use Dataram RAMDisk Software to Create RAMDisk on Windows 10? – In the previous article, we created RAMDisk on Windows 10 using ImDisk Virtual Disk Toolkit. In this article, we will examine how the Dataram RAMDisk program on Windows 10 is used.
What is RAMDisk? How to Use Dataram RAMDisk Software to Create RAMDisk on Windows 10?
What is RAMDisk? RAMDisk is a technology that allows you to allocate a specific Harddisk field to your computer’s RAM hardware. The RAMDisk provides faster read and write speed than a Harddisk and SSD devices.
There are two ways to create RAMDisk on your computer. These;
1. Software RAM Drive
2. Hardware RAM Drive
When using software RAMDisk, a dedicated HDD block is allocated on existing RAM devices on the computer. However, all information in RAMDisk is deleted when the computer is restarted.
Hardware RAMDisk is a hardware solution created by multiple RAM slots on an external electronic card. Because this card is specially designed for RAMDisk, the information on RAMDisk is not deleted when the computer is restarted.
The electronic card used for hardware RAMDisk technology is as follows;
What Does RAMDisk Do?
After briefly talking about what is RAMDisk, let’s explain what does RAMDisk do.
The installation files for programs such as Google Chrome, Adobe PhotoShop or CamTasia that you use on your computer are located on the harddisk where your operating system is installed. Therefore, when you run one of these programs and perform an operation, the Cache (s) used are saved on the HDD.
If you are designing a project with PhotoShop, you can configure the PhotoShop Cache location on RAMDisk so that Cache files can be read faster. Or, you can configure the Chrome Cache location on the RAMDisk field for faster surfing on the Internet.
Because SSD disks are high-performance, you may not be able to create and use a RAMDisk space. However, it is very logical to use RAMDisk in a job that needs high data writing and reading.
To configure the Cache location of the Google Chrome web browser to RAMDisk, you can perform the following command at the CMD command prompt. Before applying this command, change the Cache folder name of Chrome to Cache.bak.
