[Solved] How to Create a RAMDrive?

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello

Back in the old DOS days, it was possible to include in Config.SYS a reference to a RAMDrive, and define its size, etc.

Is it possible in Windows XP, to Create a RAMDrive,

but not in Config.SYS in boot time,

but in Run Time - whenever I want,

like executing a simple EXE with parameters to Create the drive,

and after some time executing the EXE with another parameter to dispose of the drive, when work is done.

Thank you

Zohar

hello snowmaker,

thank you for your reply.

The RAMDrives there are a Device Driver(.SYS file) - meaning cannot be run dynamically,

but has to be included in a Config.SYS file.

I am looking for something that I can run simply like an EXE, for Creating, and Disposing of the Drive..
