Resistive memory – the technology of the future

In May 2012, British scientists have created (by the way, quite by accident, during the creation of a silicon-based light-emitting diodes), the world’s first prototype chip resistive memory (ReRAM), building on silica. As stated by the scientists, this prototype could well be the basis for further development of superfast next generation memory chip created as fully capable to operate in ambient conditions. Now a little more detail.

ReRAM – is the next generation non-volatile memory, which can at the same chip area to store much more information than those used to date different types of memory.

Is it possible to clear the memory and how to do it right?

Surely, many of you have noticed time and again that if you run a significant number of programs your computer’s speed slows down, sometimes he even does stop responding to your commands. All this happens because the private office cleaning RAM is inefficient and it is overloaded.

Program CleanMem

But it is not necessary to wait for the system to handle itself, because you can clear the memory, using special tools, such as, «CleanMem». This program has one nice feature: unlike all the others, it does not unload all the information on the hard disk, and frees up space occupied by various programs, but not used them. At the same time she does it manually or automatically at a certain time interval.

History of the stick

Flash card is a type of semiconductor technology electrically reprogrammable memory. The device uses the USB-port of your computer to transfer and recording information.

The inventor of flash memory is considered Fuji Masuoka, employee Toshiba (1984). Thanks to which in 1988 was first released a commercial flash chip. So began the story of the stick. At the time, Intel, learning about flash memory, Toshiba asked for a few samples for the study. After samples were obtained Intel, the company allocated 300 people to develop such a device.

According to one version, the term “flash” was associated with the initial singularity types of flash drives that were used to store expensive special services and important information, because when an unauthorized access attempt this media itself autonomously and irrevocably delete all the necessary information.

HDD (Hard Disk Drive)

HDD (Hard Disk Drive), hard disk or hard drive – a device designed for permanent storage of the computer. It belongs to the non-removable media.

IDE hard drive

The two major types of hard drives : IDE , SCSI and SATA .
IDE – old, kind, loyal friend. Used to this day.

SATA – also pretty good drives. They can be low-speed (5.4 thousands of revolutions per minute) and high speed (7.2 thousands of revolutions per minute). For home use is usually used one of these hard drives.

CDCheck

Surely, many of you have such a situation happened when optical disks or other media on which recorded important information is damaged, ie your computer did not want to open or copy them to the hard disk, while giving the message “Disk read error”. But to solve this problem, you can use the program CDCheck, intended for copying, reading and repair damaged disks. She, of course, is paid, but has demonstrative period – 30 days.

This program works very effectively, but if the media is quite badly damaged, the recovery may be in part.
