There are lots of tools for creating RAM drives. None of them seem to work for windows 2008 R2. Does anyone know if this is possible and if so how. Does anyone know of a tool that does work?

I've tried the gavotte ram disk. It doesn't work. When i try to install it it just sais "Failed". I don't see log files anywhere. I've tried a couple of other ones (forgot the names) to no avail.

Any ideas?



We've got an old version of the StarWind iSCSI Target software that works in 2008 R2 and can create RAM disks. It's not free, and it comes with an iSCSI wrapper, but it still works.

Wikipedia seems to have a pretty complete list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_RAM_drive_software#Microsoft_Windows

There are a lot of others in addition to ImDisk and StarWind.
