Does Volumio run completely in ram?

I’m thinking of purchasing a Raspberry Pi and a Hifiberry to specifically run Volumio in the near future.

Since I’ve been researching I’ve been noticing quite a bit of issues with sd card corruption under the Raspberry Pi in general. Power drops running in a 24/7 environment are inevitable but it seems that the pi doesn’t deal with this too gracefully.

This brings me to my question: Does Volumio run entirely in ram or are there writes to the card that could potentially corrupt it upon a power loss?

I would plan on using Volumio as a streamer only so nothing would be on the card other than the default installation of Volumio.


Anybody? A little help here.

There is no swap partition in Volumio so yes, it does run in RAM.
