RAM cannot store information unless your computer is running. As soon as you turn it off, all the information in RAM is gone.

Nope, only on a hard drive. RAM stands for random access memory, and it is just that. It is memory that is randomly accessed when your computer is on, via swap/page files. When your computer is off, everything is gone gone gone off those chips. That's why you can replace RAM chips and have no adverse effects on your computer whatsoever!

Random Access Memory (RAM) doesn't store personal info. it helps your computer run programs that don't require a lot of input from the user.

RAM is volatile memory meaning it needs electricity flowing through it to keep the information stored on it. Once you turn off your computer all the information is lost with NO way to retrieve it.. Your safe
