Hi,
wow, what a great tool! Thanx for sharing it!!!

Is there any possibility to save the RAM-disk to an image file using the command line (function similar to the button in the GUI)?

Any help is welcome!
Best regards, snoopy.


P.S.: What for? -> Automatic mount and then backup the changes of my data from the virtual drive before dismounting the ram-disk.
If you're moving the database of e.g. the media player (Win XP MCE) to the ram-disk, file access is incredibly faster

Yes. Download my rawcopy tool: http://www.ltr-data.se/files/rawcopy.zip

For example if the drive letter is E:
CODE
rawcopy -m \\.\E: C:\image_drive_e.img

This will fail if the drive cannot be dismounted and if you want to save an image anyway (without dismounting) add the -l switch (such images may get corrupted in some cases):
CODE
rawcopy -lm \\.\E: C:\image_drive_e.img

Just like the context menu item for saving an image of a volume that ImDisk adds to the context menu for drives in Windows Explorer this rawcopy method also works for any drive as well, not just ImDisk drives.
