When I first started using the program I hit on the idea of the RAM Disk to save wear and tear, noise, and reducing I/O to the HD.  That was before I had replaced most HDs with SSDs, but then I carried on using the RAM Disk to save the 'wearing' effect of write cycles to an SSD..

Thought that option went when Windows became an OS. Assume you've got a device driver loaded in config.sys or config.nt ?

Just curious as i've been trying for years to get Clipper summer '87 running in windows....

Re: Celebrating Windows 7 HOME PREMIUM!

@Champnet 

Apologies, I missed your post above.

I've been using a program called 'Primo Ramdisk' for several years

https://www.romexsoftware.com/en-us/primo-ramdisk/index.html

 

Edit:  It's a sort of set it and forget it program, i.e. run it, set your RAM Disk, close the program and forget about it.

In fact just now was the first time I've actually looked at it since installing it years ago.

I only run a single RAM Disk but the program allows multiples, I gave mine Drive letter B: which ISTR used to be one of the letters reserved for floppies in Windows years ago, BICBW.
