Use a ramdrive!

Thanks to Håkan (the inventor of QlikView) for this handy tip.

If you are storing a temporary file to QVD and then reading it instead of using Resident (because it is way faster - something that you may find is improved greatly in version 10), if you configure a RamDisk (there are several options for this) and use that as the temporary location for the QVD, then it will be even faster!

I hadn't come across a RamDisk for many years (I think since MSDOS 6) but this is a very interesting tip if saving seconds is critical to you.
