Do you know the difference between memory and hdd space?
Yes I do, but Mikrotik seems to blur the line when using memory as drive space. For instance, if it were really just memory, when I rebooted, it would erase itself fully. But it does not. Only parts of it erases itself, like any data from the queue or any data on how the firewall rules were enforced. Other parts that you can get to are not erased, like any logs that you save to disk.
So parts are volatile, parts are not. If it were HDD space, I should be able to see the file structure. If it were memory, then why show ANY of the file list. If it were Hard drive I could extend it with a micro SD card. If it were memory, I could extend it with a micro SD card.
This is why I ask questions, I am trying to figure out what it really is, and how it is treated by Mikrotik. What i really sounds like is they are treating it like a SSD, but are blocking access to it, but part of it is a volatile memory. Mikrotik is going back and forth with functions and terminology. If you have it figured out so nicely, then please explain it to use mere mortals.
