    Virtual (RAM) Disks (Home)

    Are Virtual Disks (disks that exist only in Random Access Memory) possible with Windows XP? In some earlier versions of Windows (like 95 and 98), a line like this in Config.sys would work:
    devicehigh=c:windowsramdrive.sys 4096 /e
    or
    device=c:windowsramdrive.sys 4096 /e
    It may be left over from DOS.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
