Hi,
I'd like to have the log file in another location than the hard drive. I have a ram disk installed and like to put the log file from ATITool there, so the hard disk must not not be accesses every 10 seconds. It doesn't matter if it lost after a reboot.

Is this possible? I would appreciate any help!

Thx

Trepan

not possible .. but windows write-caching will not write to the file every 10 seconds anyway.

The log file gets written to every 10 seconds? That must be a setting or something, I started ATITool, did a 1 minute artifact scan, and closed it and here's what I have:

Code:
