I would really like the option of either assembling files in memory or the option of a custom temp directory that I can place on a RAM disk.

I'm using 10 connections to saturate my 60+ Mbps line and when that is combined with R&E, the disk is hammered continiuosly. It is especially a problem if other programs want to use I/O at the same time.

I really don't care about a high memory usage. Use all you can! Putting 16 GB of RAM in my new machine is now less than $200.

Hi you could use a diskcache program.
I have the best experience with this one: http://www.romexsoftware.com/en-us/fancy-cache/index.html

60 day demo. Still beta but very good.
It's not really a RAMdisk but it greatly reduces your HD I/Os

Well worth an hour of your time to investigate Wink
Please let me/us know how it works out for you.

You can also put the Newsleecher temp directory on a RAMdisk

This does nothing, as the temp directory is not used during download.

I have loads of RAM and an SSD I could use for part assembly, I'd like to be able to use my hardware for this.
