A portion of memory that is used as if it were a hard drive. RAM drives are much faster than hard drives because your computer can read information faster from memory than from a hard drive. However, all information on a RAM drive is lost when you turn your computer off. AKA Virtual drive.
a dedicated portion of the fast computer RAM memory that is set aside and acts like a mini-hard drive
a drive made of ram, without using a hard drive
an area of memory that DOS treats like a regular disc drive
a portion of system memory that is set up to behave like a hard drive
a pseudo-disk drive that exists solely in your computer's RAM
a Virtual hard drive created in RAM only
An area of memory that is treated as though it were a hard drive, but works much faster than a hard drive. The Windows 9x startup disk uses a RAM drive. Compare to virtual memory.
A portion of memory set aside to act as a hard drive. Information can be accessed quickly in RAM a drive, but all information stored there, unless troed to an actual drive, is lost when the computer is turned off.
Memory that works as a hard drive. Much faster than a standard platter hard drive.
A disk drive that exists only in extended memory in your terminal or reader. You create, read, write, and delete files on a RAM drive the same way you can on a hard disk drive. RAM drives are faster than hard disk drives because the contents of a RAM drive are, by definition, always resident in RAM. The contents are destroyed when you cold boot the device.
