RamDisk Google Chrome cache question

I'm trying to put my cache onto my newly made ram drive. I have used a few different guides and each one I get an error saying "The name ... specified in the target box is not valid". I know you have to change the drive letter to the one of your ram drive, I have. I still cannot get it to work though. Here's a ss:



Here's the code I'm using in the target box: --disk-cache-dir="R:\cache"

Here is the location of the google chrome program: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application"

And the current Target: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"

So, what is the exact code to get the cache to load to my R: drive rather than my C: drive? Thanks.

Dude, I think you set your cache to waaay too high. 104857600 equals over 100 GB. That's probably your problem.

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --disk-cache-dir=E:/ChromeCache/ is the command in my shortcut and i use a ramdisk for the cache. try it without specifying the cache size and remove the speech mark from the end of it
