Computer users who have a little extra money or are willing to cost input on hardware probably have installed and are running their operating systems on a solid-state drive (SSD), in order to gain a better PC performance and user experience. However, SSD has a fatal drawback – it can not write frequently, otherwise the disk life can be significantly shortened. As a result, virtualizing the physical memory as RAM disk became popular. Without exaggeration, RAM disk can be twice as fast as the top-of-the-line SSD and 10 times of the fastest HDD at least!

[v6.3.1] Primo Ramdisk – Most powerful ramdisk (virtual memory disk) emulator

First of all, AppNee wants everyone to know three facts about RAM:

  1. The capacity of single memory bank is getting bigger and bigger (8 GB of RAM is already ubiquitous)
  2. The read/write speed of almost any RAM can reach more than 4 GB/s, but even the top-level, fastest SSD can only stay in the unit calculated in MB (may be 500 MB/s or less)
  3. A large proportion of the memory capacity is in the idle state (wasted in vain)

Therefore, we can use some Ramdisk (AKA: RAM drive) software to drain the idle memory capacity, in order to improve the system performance crazily – play to their extreme.

[v5.xx] Hidden Disk – Creates a password-protected hidden disk

The biggest trouble with working or studying on a public computer is that there will always be people who will look into and even steal, delete your important documents, materials and data without permission, some of which may even involve personal privacy and trade secrets. In this case, you can use Hidden Disk to create a virtual, encrypted drive (you need a password to access it) that can be hidden at will to solve this problem perfectly.

[v10.4] Symantec Encryption Desktop – PGP Desktop’s successor

PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) is currently the best and most popular data (including texts, e-mails, files, directories, partitions, and whole disk) signing, encrypting, and decrypting program, developed by Phil Zimmermann in 1991. Its source code is open, and it has withstood the challenges from thousands of top hackers around the world. It turns out that PGP is still the most secure encryption software in the world for now (until the popularity of quantum computers, I think). Without a password, no one can decrypt the data encrypted with it!

[v7.x] Gilisoft RAMDisk – Boost performance and speed up access to data

Because physical memory performs operations much, much faster than hard disk, RAM disk can greatly improve application performance. Given that large capacity memory is now widely available and mostly idle, so we can use software like GiliSoft RAMDisk to create free memory as virtual hard drives for use, thus increasing the running speed of software or system many times.

[v4.4.0] Dataram RAMDisk – Create a RAMDisk to make your computer 5x faster

First of all, you need to know that RAM has a maximum read/write speed of 100 times that of SSD and 200 times that of HDD. Therefore, when the physical memory is large enough, we can use some tools to create a virtual disk partition in the memory to specially store some frequently used programs and files (mainly temporary files generated by operating system or web browser), thus significantly improving the running speed of OS and software, and extending the service life of HDD and SSD.

ImDisk – Virtual disk driver and RAM disk creator

By modifying the environment variables of system or software to save a variety of commonly used temporary folders (Temp, IE Cache, Download folder, for example) to the virtual hard disk (RAM drive), we can effectively improve the file reading/writing speed and software running speed. And in fact, it can also reduce the reading/writing times of physical disk so as to prolong its service life to some extent.
