Most users use RAMDisk to speed up applications like: Games, Internet Explorer cache for faster web surfing Audio and Video editing, CAD programs, Software compilers, Databases, Speeding up CD duplication SETI processing, TEMP files, Swap space, Web server cache, Custom applications with high I/O, high bandwidth, or high security requirements. Some users like the security of the RAMDisk because if you do not choose to back up the RAMDisk, all information will be wiped upon power loss or shutdown. Since RAM cannot store any trace of information without power, you know the information is gone for good (not just hidden on a track of a hard drive that can be easily undeleted and even recovered after successive over-writes).
An additional feature of a RAMDisk is that it will never wear out. You can access it at maximum bandwidth 24/7/365 without fear of mechanical failure, or fragmentation (a RAMDisk can become fragmented just like any other disk, but it does not take a performance hit like a physical disk does when it becomes ragmented). A RAMDisk operating at maximum bandwidth does not produce excessive heat, noise or vibrations.A long time to run one program will lead to the same sector of the hard disk be read and written frequently, there will be a bad disk sectors. Use a RAM disk can avoid such a situation. Another reason for using a RAM disk is security or privacy. Once the computer is restarted or shutdown, the contents of the RAM disk are lost (when the auto-save feature is disabled). For some services or applications, this is an important attribute that contributes to the protection of sensitive data or information.
