Hey
EarlZ

Not being familiar with ramdisk in win 7 I went out and looked for and found one that is both free and runs in win 7 (32 bit verified by me). there is an article and download here Free Ramdisk for Windows Vista, XP, 2000 and 2003 Server My Digital Life.

Hope this helps

Ken

You should give RamDisk Plus a try. It works fine on my x64.

Thought I'd bump the thread, and post this link:

Interesting reading about "devio" for remote access, using the IMDisk Virtual Disk Driver.

The blogger seems to be into 'computer forensics', with cool links here,
