    Before starting, make sure you run the following to be updated.

    sudo apt update
    sudo apt upgrade

    After you are updated and upgraded, create your directory to link your RamDisk mount to by typing in (remember to change the %USER% to your actual user name):

    mkdisk -p /media/%USER%/RamDisk/

    Then, open up the fstab file by typing the following:

    sudo xed /etc/fstab

    Then add the following line (Again, remember to change the %USER% to your actual user name and whatever size you want. This example is for a 4GB file. AND ensure your spacing…):

    RamDisk /media/%USER%/RamDisk tmpfs defaults,size=4G,x-gvfs-show 0 0

    Last of all, you can do the following to see if it maps properly or if you end up with an error:

    sudo mount -a
