Which type of RAM drive - DVD-RAM or RAM as in Random Access Memory Drive.
A RAM drive has a lot of great things about it - SPEED is one - it operates as memory speed.
Processing is another a CPU can execute against things in memory that it cant do on I/O channel.
The things in a RAM drive can be "forgotten" when the machine is turned off. Say for example your browsing info etc.. if it is in RAM drive - bye bye, on your hard disk - hello hacker , spammer, trojaneer... oh and lets say the virus payloaded into a RAM drive and desired to startup at next boot - WRONG.. bye bye..

Cheers
