    The /dev/ram0 option represents the disk generated by the system in the machine RAM. It contains the file system of the recovery image OS. When you boot the machine from Veeam Recovery Media, this file system does not contain any backups. You can use this option after you mount a network shared folder or local disk to the file system of the recovery image OS to browse for backup files in the mounted location.
