ImDisk - how to create a RAM Disk?

The reading and writing speeds of HDDs or SSDs can be a far more exceeded by RAM disks. Yes, you're reading right: you can use a RAM disk at very high speeds compared with even the most performant nowadays SSD technology.

As the RAM modules become cheaper, you can build a PC with some consistent RAM, like 32GB or 64GB (even more if you want), then with the help of ImDisk you can create a virtual disk that can be monted in RAM. You choose how much you want (anyway, not more than your PC's or laptop's available RAM).




For an enterprise enviroment, a RAM Disk software is a gold mine: just try to imagine how could be to use a virtual disk or several virtual disks on a server with 256GB of RAM, or even 1TB of RAM. And how much speed you can get for your applications... Of course, any RAM Disk software, including ImDisk, have some limitations related to the size of virtual disks that can be created in RAM. But always are added improvements.

The interface of ImDisk is very intuitive. Also, you can use the video toturial from this post to create a RAM Disk, but I'm sure you'll not need it. In under one minute you virtual disk will be created in RAM. Then you can add what application you need into your new virtual disk, and you'll see a very huge difference, especially for applications that use very much the HDDs or SSDs, like Photoshop, After Effects, etc.

ClamWin Free Antivirus for Windows Server 2016, 2012, 2008, 2003 - Review

Yeah, I know! It's difficult, almost impossible, to find a very good and effective, but free antivirus for Microsoft Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2008 or 2003.

For a server enviroment you need an antivrus that is doing his job very well and it's smoothly. If it's free, then it's awesome, especially for beginners or small businesses.




I'm using this free antivirus for almost a decade, and I never had problems with viruses or anything is related to them. If you take a little time to study it (it's very intuitive to manage), then you'll learn very fast how to setup it.

You have two mainly tasks to do:
- to setup it to scan and automatically remove or quarantine the viruses (or only to send you a report);
- to schedule it to scan the (all) drives/folders as you wish.

After you complete the tasks listed above, then you can forget about the antivirus. It will do the job without any issues.
