How to Create a RAMDisk to Save Files to RAM in Windows 10 (Example)

A computer is a very complex device capable of doing many things thanks to its powerful computational properties. There are parameters in the Hardware that determine the power of a computer and that without those parts it would be impossible for it to work.

Parts such as the processor, the graphics card, the motherboard, the hard drive and of course the RAM. The latter has received notable improvements that have allowed it to have much better memories than those that existed when this tool was invented.

New technologies have allowed computers with memories to exist today RAM super powerful up to 32GB of space. These memories are almost never filled as most people don’t have programs big enough to fill them.

RAM memory is a fundamental part of the computer and together with the processor and the graphics card determine the power of your PC. The operation of this memory is very simple, its job consists of storing the specific information that an executed program needs.

This way, this program will not have to look for the information on the hard disk, making loading times much shorter. Hence the importance of having a RAM memory large enough to be able to store all the information of the programs you open.

However, some experts say that the latest generation RAM memories have a somewhat excessive capacity considering the target audience. This is because not everyone needs so much RAM if they are only going to use certain programs such as the browser or the video player.

It is as if you gave an average person a Formula 1 car, the car is very fast but the person would have been enough with a conventional car. That is why there are tools like RAMDisk that allow you to take advantage of the excess space of your RAM memory and we will teach you how to use it.
