How to say "I remember it"?

What is a translation for this? I've been studying the word "it" recently and have a good understanding of it, but in this context, how would it be said?

Would it be "lo recuerdo"?

Thank you.

Thank you.

What if I wanted to be very specific about something though.

Like someone says "You have my money". I would respond maybe with "I don't, but I know who does."

Any idea?

I do, I don't.

How do you transalte these words. I'm aware that in Spanish there is no translation for "do" in this context, which is why I'm confused.

Thanks.
