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

New technologies have made it possible that today there are computers with memories RAM super powerful up to 32GB of space. These memories are almost never filled as most people don't have schedules big enough to fill them.



Hence the question: will it be possible to occupy the excess memory of your RAM? Let me tell you it's possible and in this article we'll show you how. So pay attention to the guide we have prepared to show you how to use a RAMDisk to save files and optimize RAM memory.

What is RAM?

It's always good to know more about the things we use on a daily basis and we'll tell you a little bit about what one is RAM. This way you will have a bigger picture and better understand the information we will show you later in the explanation.

RAM memory is a fundamental part of the computer and together with the processor and graphics card determine the power of your PC. The operation of this memory is very simple, its task is to store the specific information that a run program needs.

This way, this program will not have to search for information on the hard drive, 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 claim that the latest generation RAM memories have a bit excessive capacity taking into account the target audience. This is because not everyone needs that much RAM if they are only going to use certain programs like the browser or video player.



It's like giving an average person a Formula 1 car, the car is very fast but the person would have been enough with a conventional car. That's 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.
