The defined scratch area serves as the available free space on the WinPE system drive (X:) for temporarily storing files.

Therefore, if you have a scratch area of 32 MB, then you have 32 MB of free space on the system drive.

This is correct. In addition, the scratch area is only available on Ramdisk builds. Treat it like a computer's actual RAM (since this is where it lives), so if you happen to put any files on the ramdisk (x:) and reboot, you will lose any of that information. You cannot permanently save any data to the X drive unless you use offline servicing on your WIM.
