Windows – make windows cache files from disk in RAM

cachememoryramdiskwindows 10

Linux and OS X are caching files from disk in RAM, whenever you have unused memory. Is there a way to do the same in Windows 10? Right now it's doing its best to keep my memory usage at 33% or 45% all the time, by compressing things.

Would putting temporary files on a ramdisk have the effect I want, albeit with a static size?

  • This is already happening. Here is a snip from Task manager memory usage. Notice the cached number of 2.3 GB.
