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. it contains a copy of the imdisk toolkit called "ImDiskTk".
Run the configuration and formatting tool and create a ram disk with the drive letter of "Z:" and a drive label of "TopOCR". We recommend at least a 64 MB ram disk. You need to create the ram disk with these parameters in order for it to work correctly with TopOCR.
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".
