How the computer stores ram memory
Computer storage, or computer memory, refers to the computer components, devices and recording media that retain binary information for some interval of time. In casual language, memory usually refers to forms of storage which are fast, but lose their contents in a case of power loss, and storage refers to forms of storage which are slower, but suitable for long-term retention.
In a home computer, storage will usually take the form of random access memory to store the computer programs that are currently running and the documents that are being worked on, a hard disk to store the programs that are not running and the documents that are not worked on at the moment, and a removable media to store purchased programs and archived documents.
