Sure - but a ramdisk is *much* more volatile than a hard drive... and 
data on a hard drive will almost *always* survive a reboot, where data 
on a ramdisk will *never* survive a reboot.

Personally, for me, the dangers of using a ramdisk as a snapshot volume 
*far* outweigh any questionable benefits...
