# Windows – Best approach to utilize RamDisk for Chrome

I use a lot of tabs and after a while less recently opened tabs take some time to become responsive, which I guess is because they're being un-cached to HDD as they're not required.

So after creating a Ram-Disk I have two options, use

--disk-cache-dir="G:/"


switch to do what it does. Or what I'm currently doing: using a directory junction for

to move that entire folder over to Ram-Disk. I thought this would be better than just disk-cache but what do I know. Is it?

As one can guess it'll be a pain saving/loading the Ram-Disk image each time I start chrome but if it really is better than the former approach I'll write a script or something.

EDIT:

So the "Default\cache" is not the only folder which is being accessed frequently. I took this screenshot when there were 21 tabs open and was trying to access least used ones way in the background window.

From this I conclude that moving entire folder to Ram would be faster that just cache. Any insights are more than welcome.
