True or false...
I have heard that DVD-RAM is better for data storage than RW. I don't really want to use R for the simple reason that I want to be able to change and delete things. Anyways, what I understand is that RW discs begin to de-crystalize almost as soon as you copy data to them. At the same time, I've heard that RAM discs do not de-crystalize because of how the disc is made. Is this true?
So that means that, besides a second hard drive, RAM discs are good for backup storage? Also, RWs can only be used so many times (1000?) while RAM discs can be formated like 100,000 times. Again, true?
I have search on Google, but I get mixed results. Thanks!

I would have to say yes, because of the different technology employed
