Using TopOCR 55 with a RAM Disk
Some of TopOCR 55's operations can be optimized by use of a RAM Disk.
This can also be a useful feature on flash memory disk file systems used by low cost tablets and stick PCs.
A RAM Disk can reduce the "wear" on a flash file system as well as providing faster image loading, particularly for large PDF files.
The TopOCR Reader distribution flash drive includes a ramdisk installation directory that is a derivitive of imdisk. This directory provides a user installable imdisk RAM Disk driver and a simple installer to initialize and format the RAM disk.. Together, these two steps can be done in under five seconds! When complete, this will create a 64 MB Ram Disk labeled Z: with a volume label of "TopOCR". You can use any other equivalent RAM Disk software so long as it preserves the same TopOCR\Z: volume name and label.
Install The Ram Disk Device Driver and Create and Format The Ram Disk
These two steps will do a silent install of the TopOCR Ram Disk Device Driver and then create and format a 64 MB Ram Disk. Ths only require a few seconds and only needs to be done once.
Deleting The Ram Disk
If you want to delete the TopOCR Ram Disk, then in the Windows File Manager, select the "TopOCR (Z:)" drive and and then "right-click" on it with your mouse and then select "Unmount ImDisk Virtual Disk".
