User friendly Ramdisk Programs?

Specs: Windows 7, 32bit, amd Black 6 core/16gb
Is there a simple "user friendly" Ramdisk program available? Not knowing much about it at the moment but I have been reading articles, forums etc and it appears that the setup&tweeking is quite complicated. My question is: "Are there good, effective PnP type Ramdisk software programs "Out There?"

Well, not really. You basically have to have some program then have some use for the drive.

I used to use a batch file to build it and copy files over to it.

Back in the days of MS-DOS Ramdisks were quite useful. But those days are long since passed. In a modern OS the system cache provides most of the benefits of a Ramdisk without the problems. In most situations a Ramdisk is a poor use of RAM and you will be better off letting the OS manage memory as it sees fit. There are some legitimate uses of a Ramdisk but they are quite unusual.

Do not be misled by the memory gauge in Task Manager that gives the impression you have a large amount of memory that isn't being used. Almost all of the memory is in use.

If I had access to 16G and not really using it, I would consider a ramdrive for some app or a few.

In days of old it made the system fly. (relative speeds) It should allow you to make some game or app run in blinding speeds still.

They sell very high end ramdrive devices that have some fantastic speeds. And prices.
