Regarding temp files and RAMdisk, I'm still researching and testing exactly which temp folders would be appropriate. Apparently on OS X, not all temp folders should be put on RAMdisk, such as /var/db, while /private/tmp and /var/run are okay on RAMdisk. So I'm still trying to determine which specific temp folders appropriate for RAMdisk would speed up various specific calibre operations. I noticed that on OS X, conversion uses /var/folders. Does anyone know all the other specific temp folders that various calibre operations use on OS X, or where I could look to determine that?
What size RAMdisk do you use?
