(Solved) - @WHS VHD Ram Disc ??(13 posts)
- Remove Solved Status
You need an awful lot of RAM. With those programs I would think you need at least 18 to 20GBs. Rather than a VHD, I would install it in VMware Player on your normal system (e.g Windows 7). Then you move or copy the VMware folder to the RAMdisk.
Is it worth it - probably not. I think you would be better off with a SSD - even if attached via USB3. I had tried a small Linux distro on a RAMdisk. It did not really go any faster than on the SSD.
