I’ve tried several RAMDisk softwares before I found one that were free and worked under Windows 10 64-Bit.
The RAMDisk I use is called ImDisk Toolkit, and I find it pretty much perfect. It got plenty of features which should cover pretty much every users needs.
It might also save a lot of write cycles on your precious SSDs. 😉
You can set it up to mount ISO-files and other image file formats if you want to.
Or setup a folder on one of your hard drives and have the content inside it copied to the RAMDisk every time you boot up your PC.
It can also be setup to save the stuff you currently got stored on the RAMDisk to a directory of your choice before you shut down your PC.
Most people know that the Windows Operative System is sending lots of information about their users to Microsofts servers.
What kind of information are they collecting? Why do they need more than information about bugs, what version you have of their product so they can send the right ones so you can update your system and information that really is needed to use Windows from day to day.
I don’t want to send everything I type, every URL I visit, the kinds of media I’m listening to or watching. Because that is private information and I like to be able to choose what kind of stuff corporations know about me.
If you want to block some of some of Microsofts Telemetry Servers then copy the list below and paste it at the end of your HOSTS file. You’re doing this at your own risk. I’ve done it among several other people and my PC seem to be working fine.
You first need to run Notepad as Administrator, click on Windows Start button, type Notepad and Rightclick on it and choose to run it as Administrator.
In the Notepad meny, Open this file: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts
Now, copy the list below and paste it at the bottom of the file, then save it and close NotePad. Now these servers should be blocked.
Visual Subst is a great tool to save some time while browsing the filesystem. For example, if you got a download folder in c:\my folder\documents\download\ you can simply create a virtual drive for it like x:\ or something like that.
So you can more easily browse to that folder within a second instead trying to find it when there’s 100’s of folders. It’s very useful if you have many different folders you need to access often.
