No. Otherwise it would be lost on power off. Applications load into and RUN from ram....But nothing stored there

A hard drive is a storage medium that stores all of the software on your computer, as well as all of the data used by that software. It is a form of permanent storage—that is, it's different to RAM that stores data temporarily for immediate access by the processor.

No, they're right. Data gets held in RAM *temporarily* and is lost during power off. The hard drive is where everything is actually stored. A filing cabinet is where documents are stored, they're only on my desk temporarily (I hope :P)

Overclockers once sent me a dead on arrival video card. I emailed them explaining what happened and it seemed I got the work experience kid on the other end, basically telling me that I wouldn't be getting a refund and that's that. A few emails back and forth later which resulted in me quoting from their own term and conditions section of their site ended up with someone else taking over the conversation, apologising and giving me the rma number. Incredibly amateurish.

Oh well. It would be a shame if they were decent value.

Thankfully, they're not decent value. Avoid.

What does the BIOS (ROM) have to say about all this? A bios strike is inevitable, unless its leading role in storing software on computing devices is recognized, our comrades in the SSD union will also strike in sympathy.. WE demand our writes!

Afraid not fella, why dont you scurry off and Google or whatever on how a computer uses RAM.

Yes it is volatile storage but that was not the point as the original description says 'all of the data used by that software'.

What about SSDs, web based data?

You are technically correct. The best kind of correct. Maybe include this in your first comment instead of leaving ambiguous ones next time :P

e.g. "So no data is held in RAM?" looks like you being a bit clueless about the difference between memory and storage, whereas...
"So you're saying no data is ever held in RAM ever? What about caches?" looks pedantic but gets your point across.

There is a contextual difference between held and used and 'stored', even more so on a deal for "Storage" .

So yes if we want to be pedantic Data is stored in Ram but only while applications are using that data, the data will then be written to storage be that local HD, SSD or storage elsewhere (a cloud provider for example).
In my 20yrs+ working in enterprise IT we have called that usage of RAM as "Held", "Cached","Queued" or even "Loaded" but not "Stored". We store data on disks or tapes....(yes sadly the world still uses tapes :-( )

And in the context of a thread with the subject of "Seagate hard drives on sale" I think we can safely assume storage means non volatile spindle based storage...in this context as per the OP's original statement..."A hard drive is a storage medium that stores all of the software on your computer, as well as all of the data used by that software" is correct.



Wondering why the OP got banned.....
