comment Can SSD raid be faster than ramdisk?
@PeterHorvath: Latency is still a big deal with SSDs. Look at all the research and benchmarks into consistency and the stuttering problems that early SSDs had. And as Michael Kjörling mentioned, RAM latency is several orders of magnitude lower than SSD. Latency on Lx caches is significantly lower still, and CPU register latency is even lower yet. And it all matters for performance.

comment How to preserve file attributes when one copies files in Windows?
@megamorf: In what way does robocopy do anything special? It doesn't do any checksumming or hashing of the data, it relies on the OS to report errors just like almost any other program.
