Auxiliary memory is what's used when main memory has been damaged by an enemy attack. It frequently runs on auxiliary power.

The web is a wonderful tool, it provides us daniweb, wiki, and other resources try using them to answer basic questions for instance the search string "main memory auxiliary memory" entered into Google gives a plethora of information

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Distinguish_between_primary_memory_and_auxiliary_memory

Any of these sites can explain the difference more eloquently than I. Main memory is usually RAM, DRAM or SRAM and auxiliary memory can be a hard drive, EEPROM, memory stick etc.
