VISIT HERE http://www.superspeed.com/ramdiskxppro.html

There is a free 30-day trial under download section. ;)

I use Ramdisk XP pro, my only complaint is that it doesn't auto-backup the ram contents to disk on shutdown. So before you shutdown you MUST copy it all otherwise cookies, cache etc. gone!

IF anyone knows of a batch setting to auto-backup on shutdown please let me know.

I'm unsure what other registry tweaks are available for XP ramdisks but I just set my Internet Temp folder to the Ramdisk. (under Internet options).

you might look at this one. It does have an autosave/copy option. As I remember it has a limit of @ 100M. depends on your setup, on mine it got to 96 or 100. Last I heard they were working to resolve that.

.ARsoft Ramdisk (http://www.arsoft-online.de/products/product.php?id=2)

It worked okay but I went with the M$ ramdisk, it does work it XP. Not using either now with my new box, but using the old box to run a server and Genome.

If you go here it walks you step by step on the M$ one:

RamDisk Guide (http://dslnuts.com/ramdisk.shtml)

However in XP it doesn't like being added in the MMC, and gives you a couple error messages on boot, but as I was 24x7 and hardly rebooted wasn't a big thing.

Just haven't got around to adding it to new box, waiting till I pump the ram up to 512 or more (pc2700 ain't cheap like the 133 was) :D
