SoftPerfect RAM Disk - Create virtual drives in your computer's RAM
Review by on
Any experienced computer user knows that hard disks have limited writing speeds. Even with top of the line hardware, the hard disk can still hold back the computer's performance. The good news is that you can address this issue with a RAM disk application. SoftPerfect RAM Disk gives you the possibility of creating virtual drives on your computer's memory, where you can store your temporary files much faster.

You can use this application on Windows XP or any later edition and it should not take you more than a minute to install it. SoftPerfect RAM Disk is absolutely free and it does not come with hidden restrictions or nag screens.

It is quite obvious that SoftPerfect RAM Disk was designed with ease of use in mind. Virtual drives can be defined without any kind of difficulties and it takes only a few seconds to create and mount them. They are listed on a compact interface, on which you can select individual drives and click the available options to enable, disable or delete them.

To create a virtual disk, you just need to specify a size, a drive letter and a file system, like RAW, FAT, FAT32 or NTFS. Additionally, you can decide to mount the new disk as a removable drive. You can also create and mount images, if you wish to save the stored contents. Once mounted, the virtual disks will appear as regular drives in Windows Explorer.

The number of available drive letters is SoftPerfect RAM Disk's only limitation, when it comes to the number of virtual disks which you may create. If you have enough RAM to spare, you may create virtual disks of up to 3.5 GB. Furthermore, if you are using a 64-bit operating system, you will be able to create disks of any size, depending, of course, on your available memory.

It is important to know that RAM disks are used mainly for a faster writing speed, not for extra storage space. This is why the application allows you to set the operating system's temp folder on a RAM disk. The best part is that you can perform the same action for third party applications as well. As a direct result, the computer will run smoother, because the operating system or external applications won't have to wait for the hard drive to write their temp files. Moreover, by writing these files in the RAM, you can prolong the physical disk's life.

Pros:
You can use part of your computer's RAM as virtual disks. Creating and mounting virtual disks takes only a few seconds. The application allows you to define a disks's size and file system and mount it as a removable drive. You can also make the operating system and external applications store their temp files on your virtual disks.

Cons:
There are no obvious drawbacks to mention.

With SoftPerfect RAM Disk, the operating system can write its temp files much faster and your hard disk will live longer.
