RAMDISK for WindowsXP?

With MS-DOS 5.0 (and maybe before) there was a driver called RAMDISK which would allocate memory to a virtual drive, that is part of your RAM would be blocked and assigned a drive letter, thus acting as a very fast “harddisc”. This was useful as a temp directory, fast access and when you reboot or power off the PC all the rubbish was gone.

Is there such a thing that could be used with Windows XP? Memory seems to be so cheap nowadays and all the rubbish that collects in the temp directory clutters up the drive and poses a security risk (files that were deleted / moved might still have a copy in the temp directoy). < who stole that ‘r’? Give it back or else …

I think it’s called “Knoppix”. :smiley:
