Esperance DV Simplifies RAM Scratch Disk Creation in Mac OS X
Making a RAM disk prior to Mac OS X was quickly accomplished through a control panel, or you can make one from the command line too, but since OS X this ability has been lost without turning to the terminal.
That’s where this nice little application comes in, as Esperance DV replicates this GUI based creation of RAM disks with a simple system preference pane add-on that allows you the same functionality for earlier releases of OS X. This app is supported from Mac OS X Snow Leopard and earlier releases, new versions of OS X will need to turn to the command line or this app called TmpDisk, however.
If you’d rather not download anything, you can follow our command line instructions to create a ram disk in mac os x using no third party downloads or utilities, only the Terminal.
