Ram Disk Creator overview

Ram Disk Creator is a tool to create Ram Disks. This feature was available in Mac OS 9 and below, but since Apple released Mac OS X this capability, unfortunately, disappeared from our Macs. Ram Disk Creator brings them back!

It's pretty straight forward to figure out whether using a RAM disk is worth it. A ram disk offers the possibility to have the FASTEST DISK your Mac could ever have. Therefore it's the best solution for applications which require frequent disk accesses.

Moreover Ram Disks are very useful for Powerbooks and iBooks because using a Ram Disk instead of the hard disk means using MUCH less power, therefore dramatically increase battery life. For instance a Powerbook can play 2 hours DivX by placing the movie on a ram disk because there will be only few disk accesses.

Ram Disk Creator is a shareware application. However you can use it with all features enabled and fully evaluate its capabilities.

In the majority of cases a RAM disk is a waste of time because MacOS X's virtual memory system does the exact same thing, except the VM system is more intelligent about what it caches. Most of the time you will just wind up putting a second copy of all of the data (which the VM system may wind up paging to disk anyways... killing the usefulness).

Won't storing files on a disk image accomplish the same thing?
