Virtual Hard Drive allows disk data to be accessed at physical memory speed. VHD is not a physical hard disk on a physical drive, but rather a 'virtual' disk in the RAM memory. It is faster than any hard disk available and it can enhance performance if used correctly. This feature makes it especially useful for some frequently accessed programs, files and folders. For example, you can move your browser's cache folder to a RAM disk, which may significantly increase speed while browsing the Internet. You can also choose not to save the Virtual Hard Drive image after shutting down the computer, which can remove the massive cache files and save your disk space.
The data stored on the RAM Disk is lost when you shut down your PC. But Virtual Hard Drive provides a special function that allows users to save the data in the RAM Disk as an image file when the computer is turning off. In addition, the image can be loaded into the Virtual Hard Drive automatically (or manually) when the computer is started. You can treat it as if it is another hard disk drive so you do not need to worry about data loss. The only difference between a RAM Disk Drive and a Hard Disk Drive is Virtual Hard Drive’s amazing speed.
