Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

RAM is volatile.  It is just temporary storage because when you cut the power, everything stored there is lost.

    RAM is only temporary. It is also controlled/managed by the OS. It is also not a medium for physically transferring to another system or for archiving storage.

    It is temp memory that functions only when your machine is on. The moment you switch your device off, it goes off.
