I'm getting a computer with 32 GB of memory and I'd like to allocate a good 8-16 GB to a RAM drive to boost performance of the files and programs that I open and close often. Simultaneously, I'm moving to encrypt more of the data that I store on my computer, including some of those files that I access quite often. For this reason, I'm interested in encrypting some part of the RAM drive by mounting a TC container stored inside the RAM drive. Do I risk corrupting or losing the data stored in the TC drive? If it's not risky, will the performance improvement on the RAM disk be similar to that of unencrypted files?
I've searched around online and haven't found a discussion of this issue. There is a reference to using a RAM disk on the TC FAQ, where they discuss mounting the drive so as not to leave traces of your use of TC. For this reason, I'm thinking it might be okay from a security/stability perspective, but that isn't explicitly stated, and there really isn't a discussion of it there or elsewhere. That FAQ answer also doesn't mention performance.
