Re: It is not free

Substitution of fast RAM for slow hard drives is not new.  I remember using a 160K RAM drive on an old IBM XT with 640K of memory to hold a DOS file (Command.com) that was referenced regularly.  Even though everything has become bigger and faster this substitution technique should work.  That said, there is "no free lunch", and assigning memory to a RAM drive removes that same memory from Windows or whatever operating system is in use.  That may have consequences for other parts of the program - or other programs if the machine is multi-tasking.
