RAMDRIVE.SYS file is in the Windows ME folder. Search it and you will find it. Thank you.

Here is the MS article:
The Ramdrive.sys device driver that is included with Windows Millennium Edition (Me) cannot be loaded in Windows Me. When you double-click the My Computer icon or when you start Microsoft Windows Explorer, the drive letter that was formerly associated with the random-access memory (RAM) drive is no longer available.


CAUSE
This issue can occur because you removed real-mode support. When real-mode support has been removed, the Device= entries in the Config.sys file are not processed by Windows Me. Therefore, a RAM drive cannot be created.


MORE INFORMATION
RAM drives are not supported in Windows Me. To view a RAM drive, you must start the computer by using a Windows Me Emergency Boot Disk (EBD).

RAM drives are virtual drives that map a block of physical memory to a drive letter. This process enables the drive to be used for temporary storage and to process data. However, Ramdrive.sys still resides on the Windows Me EBD for use outside of the Windows graphical user interface (GUI).
