    I have recently noticed the Antivir updates fail due to the hard drive space available. The hard drive the update reports having low disk space is the RAM disk. Can the RAM disk size be changed? If so, is it possible to change the RAM disk size at boot or does the changing the RAM disk size require a rebuild and cd recreation?

    Thank you in advance.

        Will this increase the size of the B: (RAM) drive?

          He wouldn't have recommended it if it wouldn't work... of course the system still has to have enough memory to support a larger ram drive.
          Plan A is always more effective when the device you are working on understands that Plan B involves either a large hammer or screwdriver....

            This worked perfectly, and also fixed my problem with updaing Avira.

              Hi

              a quick search revealed

              http://www.ubcd4win.com/...ze&fromsearch=1

              this is a plugin to change the limit which was set years ago to 96 Meg

              PreShell.ini", "Shell", "ProfileRamDriveSizeMax1", "512"


              preshell.ini could be edited directly using notepad instead of the plugin

              regards
              Mike Barnes
