RAMdisk protection

    What do you do when your XE/XL computer crashes while you are using a RAMdisk? Pressing the reset button does nothing; so your only other recourse is to power down your computer: You lose the documents, data, and other important information stored on the RAMdisk. The Ramdisk Protector, a hardware/software combination, tricks your XE/XL computer into thinking that the power has been turned off, then back on. It is valuable even without a RAMdisk. The software enables DOS to recognize and provide immediate access to a RAMdisk. Both functions are entirely transparent.
    The Protector installs without tools for push-button control. Included are DOS enhancements for support of Atari DOS 2.5 and SpartaDOS. The Ramdisk Protector has a list price of $22.95.
