RAM Disk Guide Rev. 3.0. - RAM Disk Guide Rev. 3.0.
Wed, Sep 17 2014 | 9:00AM | Filed under: Beginners Guides| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

The RAM disk has been around since the 1980s, but it has never been popular due to the high cost of computer memory. It is now making a comeback, partly because RAM is now cheap and plentiful and partly because solid state drives (SSDs) are fast replacing hard disk drives as the storage medium of choice. SSDs are not only much faster than hard disk drives, they are silent and virtually impervious to vibration and shock. The downside though is their limited lifespan. That's where the RAM disk comes in - it allows the user to reduce wear and tear on the SSD by shifting some of the work to it. There are, of course, pros and cons to the RAM disk, and this guide will guide you through it all. On top of that, we will teach you how to make full use of your RAM disk.

Finding the right software program to clone a hard drive is one thing, but how about cloning Microsoft WindowsXP and the rest of a computer in one go? This guide to Cloning an Operating System explains all the steps involved. - PCSTATS Tips
