Install RamDisk for Mac

Thank you for purchasing RamDisk for Mac.

About RamDisk

RamDisk is a powerful tool, that not only significantly speeds up your Mac, it also prolongs the life of your SSD (Solid State Disk).

RamDisk creates an image of your SSD in the RAM of your Mac, this images serves as the drive you are working. That’s why it is not only much faster than any SSD, but also enhances the lifetime of your SSD. Unlike the memory used in your SSD, writing cycles don’t have an impact on the RAM.

RamDisk serves 2 purposes: Speeding up your Mac and increasing the lifetime of your SSD. Of course RamDisk works with a conventional Hard Disk too.

You can treat RamDisk like any drive, you can store data, pictures, movies and everything on RamDisk like you would on any drive. The difference is that any data on RamDisk is loading much, much faster.

If you have applications that make extensive use of your hard drive or SSD like photo editing or movie editing, you should work on RamDisk. This will not only make your applications run faster, it will reduce the workload on your SSD or hard disk as well.

Installing RamDisk

Installing RamDisk is quite simple.

After downloading RamDisk, locate the folder where it is stored. Usually this folder is called Downloads.

RamDisk is now installed on your Mac, the icon of RamDisk shows up in your bottom bar now.

A few additional settings are necessary to put RamDisk to work.

Make RamDisk ready to use

Since RamDisk is an additional drive on your Mac, it needs a name. You can create as many drives as you want, as long as you got enough RAM.
Keep the size of the RAM in mind, when deciding how big the RAM drive should be!

To check how much RAM your Mac has, click on the apple icon in the top bar, then choose “About this Mac” in the drop down menu.

In the Window that pops up you can see how much RAM your Mac has.

Experiences have shown show that a RamDisk should not be bigger that 50 percent of the available memory. If your RAM Disk is to big, your OS has not enough RAM what then will have an impact on performance. How much RAM your application needs depends pretty much on the application itself. Heavy picture editing with Photoshop will need more RAM than a browser does, as example.
You will later see that you can create more than one Ram Disk, that means you can create a Ram Disk for a specific application.

To set up RamDisk, tap on the icon in the bottom bar.

The following window will pop up. This is your control center.

Screen Shot 2014-04-23 at 23.02.02

Tap on + to create a new drive.
You can now give it a name, choose where the image is saved on shut down and how big the drive should be.

Once you entered the necessary information, tap create.

Screen Shot 2014-04-23 at 23.01.46

That’s it. RamDisk is now ready to use.

Whenever you run applications that make extensive use of your SSD, copy the data into your RamDisk to speed them up significantly.
If you have an application that you are using often, you can create a Ram Disk that has the optimal balance between RAM and RamDisk for this application and name it accordingly.

Have fun, and enjoy working on your sped up Mac.

Instalar RamDisk

Gracias por adquirir RamDisk para Mac.

Acerca de RamDisk

RamDisk es una potente herramienta que no solamente acelera tu Mac significativamente, también prolonga la vida de tu SSD (unidad de estado sólido).

RamDisk crea una imagen de tu SSD en la RAM de tu Mac, esta imagen sirve funciona como la unidad en la que estás trabajando. Por eso no solamente es mucho más rápida que cualquier SSD, sino que también mejora la vida de tu SSD. Al contrario que la memoria utilizada en tu SSD, los ciclos de escritura no tienen un impacto en la RAM.

RamDisk tiene 2 propósitos: acelerar tu Mac y aumentar la vida de tu SSD. Por supuesto, RamDisk funciona también con un disco duro convencional también.

Puedes tratar RamDisk como cualquier unidad, puedes almacenar datos, imágenes, películas y todo en el RamDisk igual que lo harías en cualquier unidad. La diferencia es que cualquier dato en el RamDisk se carga mucho, mucho más rápido.

Si tienes aplicaciones que hacen un gran uso de tu disco duro o de tu SSD como aplicaciones de edición fotográfica o de películas, deberías trabajar en RamDisk. Esto no solo hará que tus aplicaciones funcionen más rápido, también reducirá la carga de trabajo de tu SSD o del disco duro.

Instalar RamDisk

La instalación de RamDisk es bastante sencilla.

Después de descargar RamDisk, localiza la carpeta en la que está guardado. Normalmente, esta es la carpeta llamada Descargas.

Screen Shot 2014-04-25 at 19.47.32

Haz clic con el botón derecho (pulsa con dos dedos) sobre el icono y elige abrir en el menú.

Screen Shot 2014-04-25 at 19.47.37

Después de eso, aparecerá una ventana emergente, pulsa en abrir. Esto es importante, ¡la aplicación no se instalará si eliges Cancelar!

Screen Shot 2014-04-23 at 23.01.21

RamDisk ya está instalado en tu Mac, el icono de RamDisk aparece ahora en tu barra inferior.

Es necesario realizar unos pocos ajustes adicionales para poner RamDisk a trabajar.

Preparar RamDisk para su uso

Puesto que RamDisk es una unidad adicional de tu Mac, necesita un nombre. Puedes crear tantas unidades como desees, siempre que tengas RAM suficiente.
¡Ten en cuenta el tamaño de la RAM cuando decidas el tamaño que debería tener tu unidad RAM!

Para comprobar cuánta RAM tiene tu Mac, haz clic en el icono de la manzana de la barra superior, después elige “Acerca de este Mac” en el menú desplegable.

Screen Shot 2014-04-25 at 20.05.32

En la ventana que aparece puedes ver cuánta RAM tiene tu Mac.

La experiencia nos ha enseñado que un RamDisk no debería ser mayor del 50 por ciento de la memoria disponible. Si tu disco RAM es demasiado grande, tu SO no tendrá RAM suficiente y eso tendrá un efecto negativo en el rendimiento. Cuánta RAM necesita tu aplicación depende bastante de la aplicación en sí misma. La edición pesada de imágenes con Photoshop necesita más RAM que un navegador, por ejemplo.
Más tarde verás que puedes crear más de un disco Ram, lo que significa que puedes crear uno para una aplicación específica.

Para configurar RamDisk, pulsa en el icono de la barra inferior.

Aparecerá la siguiente ventana. Este es tu centro de control.

Screen Shot 2014-04-23 at 23.02.02

Pulsa en + para crear una nueva unidad.
Ahora puedes darle un nombre, elegir dónde se guardará la imagen al apagar y qué tamaño debería tener la unidad.

Una vez que introduzcas la información necesaria, pulsa en crear.

Screen Shot 2014-04-23 at 23.01.46

Eso es todo. RamDisk está ahora preparado para su uso.

Cuando ejecutes aplicaciones que hagan un gran uso de tu SSD, copia los datos en tu RamDisk para acelerarlas significativamente.
Si tienes una aplicación que utilizas a menudo, puedes crear un disco Ram con el equilibrio óptimo entre RAM y RamDisk para esta aplicación y nombrarla en consecuencia.

Diviértete y disfruta trabajando en tu Mac agilizado.
