I created a Ramdisk and moved all my different browser cache(Opera FF, IE) to it. I moved the IE Cache using tools>options>bowsing history settings>move folder
The cache is being saved to all of them including the IE, but the IE folder is always empty. What is going on? :angry:
How do I get it to show me the folders

Its possible that your browser settings for IE under Internet options/Advanced tab for empty temporary files folder is ticked.

Just out of curiosity, why did you do that? There is VERY little (if anything) to be gained by using a ram drive unless you are running a very large, very data-centric application (in other words, a HUGE database).

To preserve disk life, it'll keep writes/reads to and from ssd to a minimum primarily. It also has the added benefit of speeding up my system cos an empty ssd is faster and I only have 60GB of SSD space so the extra Ram acts as drive space. Faster surfing secondarily
