Now that I have 12 gigs of ram in my PC I'd like to make the most of it and minimize the disk access of the application/game I'm using while I use it so I'm wondering if there are some ways to preload as much of an application that can fit into ram when it's started.
I tried making a ramdrive, but it got tiresome copying the files back and forth and making the ntfs junctions every time. Also it seems that not every program can follow the junctions :S
I'd also like to do this for video files, specially large hd movies. It seems that every media player I've tried only loads the parts of the file already watched into ram + a few seconds. It makes for really choppy fast forwarding.
Anyone here done something like this?
