Hi all, I was playing Assassins Creed 4 Black Flag for some time on an SSD but I now have it running on a Ram rive using the software that came with my Rampage 4 Black edition motherboard, the game is amazing with no stutters from the Ram Drive unlike the SSD I was using but my question is where does the game files and data go when I shut down my PC? I have the original copy on the SSD but this is a ram drive of 28 Gig so doesn't that mean when I shut it down everything gets copied somewhere?

Yeah ram is finicky in that way but I don't really want to suspend or hibernate my pc to fix keeping the game in ram, when a pc is shut down does the ram disk files get copied to somewhere (where does this go to? and how do I change the place it is copied to?) or is it just wiped out of existence?

The contents of the RAM Disk are saved to SDD/HDD as what Asus calls a "junction point", then restored to volatile memory the next time the RAM Disk software becomes active. You can specify drives and locations and can configure options for specific "junction point" behaviours through the software. Sudden power loss (failure to shut down properly) will lose the contents of volatile memory before they can be written/updated to the nonvolatile "junction point".
