Windows 7: Acronis and DataRAM RAMDisk

31 Dec 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Acronis and DataRAM RAMDisk

Hello All:

I've been using Acronis for years without a hitch. That is, until I installed Windows 7.

Then the BSOD's started. I upgraded to version 2011 because I read it was compatible with Windows 7 x64.

Recently, I've been getting BSOD's again: Stop Code 50 with snapman.sys pointed to as the culprit. snapman.sys is one of Acronis' drivers.

After scouring the Internet for many hours I stumbled upon something:
All Acronis versions are incompatible with DataRAM's RAMDisk, which I happen to use.

The 'fix' is to install updated snapapi driversfrom Acronis' site:
Compatibility of Acronis Software with Dataram RAMDisk | Knowledge Base

I've been pulling my hair out for a long time over this and I surely hope that it will save someone else from premature baldness!

I'm not getting bald anytime soon thanks to you! A thousand thanks for sharing this information.
