This free tool just shows you basic information regarding your PC's memory. Considering its simplicity and lack of heavy graphics, Ramdisk took a bit too long to install on our test machine. The program appears as a small, dual-pane window with two pie graphs and fields showing information such as hard-drive size, maximum amount of RAM, and RAM currently in use. Mousing over the system-tray icon gives you this data in terms of percentages. Ostensibly, the application can log its findings, but in multiple tests we could never get this feature to work. You can determine how often Ramdisk refreshes its information, but that's one of only a few user-customization options. Still, since it doesn't cost anything, we can see how this app might be a suitable system utility for beginners who don't need in-depth statistics.
