Also, from T & D Issue #95
"7. 512K RAM DRIVE3 - This program puts 2 full size RAM disks into the
computer's extended memory. You must have a Coco3 with 512K memory to run
this program. Version 1-1 is for Color Disk Basic 1.1. Version 1-0 is for
Color Basic 1.0. To load the program simply type LOADM"DISK 1-1" or LOADM"
DISK 1-0". Then type EXEC. The program runs drives 0-3 just like always and
now drives 4 and 5 are in RAM. Type DIR5 to test. You can save information
on drives 4 or 5. If the user has to reset the computer, the program will be
lost but the data on the RAM disks will still be intact. To restore control
of this data the user would have to reload the program and type EXEC &HD91C
and press <ENTER>. This restarts the program without erasing the RAM drives.
To save this program, enter SAVEM"RAMDISK",3584,3711,3584."
So you can backup to :4 say, then backup that to :0
