  1. once use pendrive as ram, we can revert back as pen-drive?

  2. very useful, by this we can opt for low rate RAM

  3. but can i get the same speed from this as compare to real RAM or this is just to increase some bit of speed

    1. You will not get the same speed of ram. Because the speed of ram is much much greater than that of a pendrive.. Just compare the price of a 4gb ram and 4gb pendrive

  4. my pc does not start after this process if the pendrive is inserted.

  5. It is external,so if it is at the time of shake or disconnected it make data losses..
