"Not bad at all"

July 14, 2012  |  By mqc1023

 |  Version: VSuite Ramdisk Free Edition 1.18.1531.1240

Pros

Works with Windows 7 professional 64 bit. Easy to use interface. Does what a RAMDISK is supposed to do. Has good options and it's not bad at all.

Cons

Boring, but can't make RAMDISKs larger than 4gb

Summary

I recommend this product. I ran videos and files with no trouble. I have a LOT of RAM (more than 16 gb) and it's a great "what do I do with all that RAM that W7 is not really going to use" solution.

Make sure you have enough extra RAM as this product (like all products) has overhead.

Making a RAM DISK your temp folder is tricky as some temp operations (such as web browsers) make huge amounts of temp files that can overwhelm this effort. A great use is for a test folder for applications or files you're not sure about and want to get rid of quickly by rebooting the machine.

"Does not support 64bit"

December 17, 2010  |  By sdf0013

 |  Version: VSuite Ramdisk Free Edition 1.18.1531.1240

Pros

Can't tell. Wouldn't even install.

Cons

Does not support Win7 64bit.

Summary

I guess it's too much to ask of a free version to support 64bit, but it would have been nice for the description to mention that.

"Works as documented under Windows XP Pro SP3"

August 09, 2010  |  By dmccunney

 |  Version: VSuite Ramdisk Free Edition 1.18.1531.1240

Pros

It installs and works as documented under Windows XP Pro SP3. It was easy to create and use a RAMDisk with an NTFS file system, and assign it a preferred drive letter. I used it to hold some frequently used console utilities and for temp files.

Cons

I have 4GB RAM, and want to use RAM above 3.5GB for the RAMDisk, with the "Use Invisible RAM" feature. It lets me enable the function, but it doesn't seem to work. This is likely a motherboard limitation, as mine only reports 3.1 GB installed.

Summary

I'm not using it at the moment, as it can't use the RAM I wanted in my installation, and I'd rather give the RAM to Windows. This is a motherboard/BIOS limitation on my end: the mobo reports only 3.1 of my 4GB to Windows. (This is documented in the motherboard manual.)

Aside from that, the program installed with no problems, and was relatively simple to configure and use. I could create a 256MB RAMDisk using an NTFS file system, put small console utilities I wanted on it with a batch file run at at startup, and put browser cache and temp files there. The program also claims you can put the Windows page file on it, but I didn't try that option.

Recommended for folks who want to try using a RAMdisk in Windows as a capable freeware offering.
