View Thread: Microsoft's XP RAM Disk Driver
  • User profile image

    Never advise anyone to switch to XP 64bit.  Just avoid that. XP 32bit, Server, Win7, Linux Mint LXDE, but not XP64. That OS is like an Abandonware poster-child.

    Also...  Has it occured to you that millions of people are still using 32bit hardware?  Look at the date on this message, scary isn't it?  But it's true.

    Back to topic:  I found (& Necrobumped) this because I am interested in establishing a RAM-drive for security and also because the Win8 USB system degrades heavily when running from non-USB3.0 devices.  I may try a Bart PE, Win PE, or Tiny XP distro booted from USB to RAMdrive next.

    It's a recovery thing.  Linux is great, but sometimes XP would be better and current USB distros I've found rely completely on USB flash.
