How do I use ramdrive.sys to create a 2mb ramdrive in win95? I want it to have the drive letter R: and to keep my other drive letter assignments (a:, c: and d:). I also need the drive letter E:

What difference does it make whether I use expanded or extended memory to create the drive in.

Just use the DOS version of ramdrive in your config.sys, for more help see the help of ms-dos 6.22

Thanks but I need to know how to reserve E: as this is next logical drive letter which it uses. I guess I could do without the use of E: but I'd rather not have to.

First you must go to Config.sys and put LASTDRIVE=R.
After that in Config.sys you put DEVICE=Ramdrive.sys 2048 /e /d:r

I have tried the recomened steps (see below)w/ RamDrive.sys Ver3.06 and it did not set it as an "R" drive, it set it as the next available drive letter (in my case "F") and gave me the following error msg- "RAMDrive: invalid parameter"
All of the Readme.txt & *.Hlp files I can find that explain RamDrive.sys do not give directions how to specify a drive letter. I am still looking for a way to do it.
[CONFIG.SYS](did NOT set it as R)
DEVICE=HIMEM.SYS
LASTDRIVE=R
DEVICE=Ramdrive.sys 2048 /e /d:r

Thanks for your help. I've managed to make do with RamDrive using the next available letter (now G) and using H as the drive I want to reserve. I'm not sure what the error is though.

Again thanks.
