Hello!

 

Maybe anybody know how to start ram-disk (imdisk) with delay (on windows startup)?

 

I configure my RAM-disk with RamDiskUI.exe

 

As you use RamDiskUI from the Toolkit, you can delay the startup of the service with the following command, in an elevated command prompt:
sc config ImDiskRD start= delayed-auto
(requires Windows Vista or later, and I don't know whether the delay is configurable)

I have tried and extend a disk using faq 3 ( imdisk -e -s 400M -m R: ) and it says "access is denied", and of course I can't unmount it. Is there an easy way to solve it?

Are you trying this in a command prompt as administrator (with elevated privileges)? That is required in this case. There could be other reasons too, for example this only works when morning image files or ram disks directly, not through proxy services.

yes, on local system, in elevated cmd. If that is due to some application writing to the disk, I may be unaware of some open process locking it, just guessing.

It does not lock the volume for this because that is not needed. It should be possible to do with files open on the volume. There must be something else causing this in this particular case.
