Anti-ransomware - backup folder - denied access to SYSTEM, Users permissions are set to read only.
I turn off PC with Wise Cleaners + tweaks, to remove startup entries/policies and to restore my settings.
Browser's cache, Desktop, Downloads and Temp folders are stored in the RAMDisk, where malware likes to hide.
In case of an emergency (ransomware) I can hit Reset and Windows will boot with all those reset to the previous state.
I just came to know about RAMDisk and Googling trying to learn more about it. My laptop has 16GB RAM and 4GB AMD Graphics. What GB should I allocate for RAMDisk?

ImDisk can allocate RAM dynamically, so as much or as little as needed. I have it set to 20GB max, but it ussually uses only about 1GB. In your case I would try 4GB max for starters.

"The amount of RAM you should allocate for a RAMDisk depends on several factors, including your overall RAM usage and the size of the files you plan to store on the RAMDisk. As a general rule, it's recommended to allocate no more than 25% to 30% of your total RAM to a RAMDisk. For a laptop with 16GB RAM, you can allocate around 4GB-5GB for the RAMDisk. However, keep in mind that allocating too much RAM to a RAMDisk can affect your system's performance, so it's important to experiment with different amounts to find what works best for you."

Found this article which says OSFMount is the fastest one. Have you tried OSF too? How is it compared to ImDisk?

I have tried several paid/trial versions and they are indeed noticeably faster (Softperfect). I was under impression that RAM speed is the limitation, but obviously the driver/software matters too.
I have not tried OSFMount though, I used AMD ramdisk before, but it has not been updated for years, so I moved on, but since everything is working, I do not tempt the fate but testing too much.
