# Creating a RAM disk out of an existing folder on a hard drive

I know there's a lot of software that will allow you to create a RAM disk, but I have a specific situation.

I'd like to put my installation of League of Legends onto a RAM disk. The issue is that League of Legends, in Windows, points to an exact location within C:\ in many instances of the program. That being said, it cannot be installed on a separate drive.

How can I set it to create a RAM disk out of an existing folder on C:\?

Im scratching my head on this. Why do you want to do this? LoL is a fairly lightweight game. Yes, by doing this the game would load faster, but once in game there would be no benefit. –  Keltari Aug 13 at 13:12
@DaveRook I don't agree that this is necessarily a product recommendation question. The OP is asking how to accomplish a goal; it seems to me that any RAM disk driver would be equally good (or bad) to do this. Now, why one would do it is a different matter, but doesn't really change whether this is a product recommendation question or not. –  Michael Kjörling Aug 14 at 13:21
@MichaelKjörling, if you look through the edit history you'll see it was quite specifically a software recommendation, and this is when I posted my initial comment. If the mods want to remove my initial comment as it's no longer needed, fine. –  Dave Aug 14 at 13:29
@DaveRook No, I considered the question as it currently is, not as it once was. I see now that it once was a product recommendation question, but it doesn't appear to be any longer. –  Michael Kjörling Aug 14 at 13:30
