I have a game where saving is impossible most of the time, there are big gaps between saves and many progress is lost if the game crashes or I die.

I want to know if it's possible to dump the RAM of a process onto the disk and then restore it when needed? and if yes, how do I do that?

Just like suspending a VM-Ware virtual machine... but not a virtual machine yet a process in windows.

@Gizmo - Unless the software supports this feature its not possible to do this. An application's memory space is protected. – Ramhound Aug 13 '13 at 16:46
invalid duplicate - I want for WINDOWS, "duplicate" wants for LINUX – Gizmo Aug 13 '13 at 20:10
