RAMDisk is the right product for you if you have a disk I/O bound application that is small enough to fit in main memory. RAMDisk is also great for storing frequently accessed data such as temp files, page files and database index files. RAMDisk is a kernel-level driver that presents a standard disk drive to the OS, however, it stores and retrieves data from the system RAM on your motherboard instead of an actual, physical disk. Along with the Kernel Driver is a GUI that talks to the driver and allows the user to set various options as well as start and stop the Driver (create or delete a RAMDisk).
Reviewing 1.1 (Feb 25, 2000)
RAM is supposed to be used as temporary storage of commands of programs. This program actually slows down performance. By taking memory heaps and turning them into hard drive sectors, access to apllications will slow as RAM will now be used as permanent storage. Instead, why not fix data into the auxillary memory.
