Is there a method or a tool that would allow me to have a RAM disk with dynamic memory allocation?

I want it to use RAM space only when space is actually used by files, I do not want an empty RAM drive of 2GB to waste 2GB of RAM immediately after initialization.

It would also be nicer if the RAM disk would decrease RAM usage upon deletion of files, but I know that I could be asking for too much.

@techie007 searched didn't find anything useful, currently using dataram ramdisk, -- I do not think this kind of question (What have you tried) is suitable here, since I am not asking how to code it from scratch. – sharp12345 Mar 30 '13 at 15:53
It's basically a shopping/software recommendation question otherwise. Which are considered off-topic. – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Mar 30 '13 at 15:57
@techie007 it is not a shopping question if the answer is a 'method' to do it with any of the existing software. – sharp12345 Mar 30 '13 at 16:16
