Can we skip the old discussion and head for what folk found?
Creating a RAM DRIVE for temp or swap is counterproductive since we steal that RAM from the OS that does use it to cache apps and more. And the OS uses a variable allocation method so RAM is returned from the cache when needed and when there is unused RAM it can be added to the CACHE.
Be sure to read the few last decades of discussion about this. It appears you are just starting to discuss this and I don't want to upset you but.... "Don't do it man!"
hello. i have been looking up info on ram drives. some people say it is worth setting up. other people say that it doesn't help all that much. is it worth setting up a ram drive? and if so, is it best to just put a program or 2 on it, such as your internet program like google chrome to speed it up? or is it better to put your page file on it? i plan on using my system to game so i don't know if that would change the response any. thanks
