I am evaluating StarWind's RAMdisk and wonder if there is an API or command line interface?

I would like to be able to create a RAMDisk, stop a RAMDisk (eject it or close it) programmatically or with a script. I would also like the ability to save the RAMDisk in a binary format of somekind and restore a previously saved RAMDisk.

I program in both c++ and Powerbasic.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I think that this KB might be useful https://knowledgebase.starwindsoftware. ... -disk-sdk/.
Consider also creating RAM disk in StarWind VSAN https://www.starwindsoftware.com/help/R ... evice.html. There should be CreateRam.ps1 in C:\Program Files\StarWind Software\StarWind\StarWindX\Samples\powershell that helps you to create a RAM disk in PowerShell.
