I wasn't aware that you could partition RAM.

Perhaps you mean partition a "flash drive"?

Hi brn2rul,

Check Ram_disk. See the link in References to unix script for more information and script. Let us know if that helps.

Hi prunejuice,

Yes you can you can partition a RAM disk and pretend to use it as a hard disk ... it is helpful when you are going to constantly use certain files , putting it into RAM disk will improve performance sice it is faster than the HARD disk.

Hi brn2rul,

The Mac OS/X is based on UNIX, so I would recommend trying the unix script on Linux, and make any adjustments accordingly.
