This is Connectix RAM Doubler version 8.0.1 - a RAM virtualization software for Macintosh computers with installed RAM of less than 256 MB.

RAM Doubler 8 is not a solution for applications that require more memory than you have installed (in physical RAM). For example, a configuration with 8 MB of physical RAM installed should not run an application that requires 10 MB of RAM. The memory RAM Doubler 8 provides is best used to run more applications simultaneously.

Top DL: A Disk Copy 4.2 image file of a 800k DD floppy disk, compressed as StuffIt v5.5 ".sit" archive. Use same or Disk Copy 6.3.3 to write back to 800k floppy media.
MD5 checksum & filename: 51457e7a1ea08649f3f8c2971747e68a *Connectix-RAM-Doubler-801.sit

2nd DL Patched copy of the same, to allow installing without requiring a floppy disk drive.
MD5 checksum & filename: 6884bf7674accf7c4520fe24bc62b140 *RAM-Doubler-8-patched.sit

Architecture: 68k PPC

Suitable for Mac OS's 7.1 to 8.6 with 32bit addressing turned on, M68030 CPU's or above, or PPC Macintosh.

Top DL only: This software must be installed from a hardware floppy disk to install. During installation the installer checks for the presence of being run from a physical hardware floppy drive and will not install otherwise.

With 84 MB RAM or more installed, RAM Doubler 8 extends memory up to 256 MB on 68K processor configurations or 240 MB on PowerPC configurations (16 MB is reserved for File Mapping on PowerPC).

Not suitable for Macintosh emulators.
