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.

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.
