Download Flush within a second (StuffIt X, 5.1 K)
This is a remake of CacheSaver 1.0.2.
CacheSaver could do exactly what I wanted. This is from the documentation:
Like many people, you’ve probably found that increasing the size of the disk cache in the Memory control panel can improve the performance of many applications, especially web browsers like Netscape Navigator. The disk cache speeds up disk input and output by keeping the contents of files in RAM, rather than immediately reading or writing them on the disk.
The problem with using a large disk cache is that when you save information, the data may end up staying in the cache for quite a while before it really gets written to your hard disk. If your Mac crashes before the cache gets saved, your data is lost.
CacheSaver addresses this problem by periodically saving (or "flushing") the disk cache, thus minimizing data loss should your Macintosh crash while you are working. You can set CacheSaver to flush the cache whenever your Mac is idle for more than a specific amount of time, or it can do it automatically at regular intervals. CacheSaver also provides a hotkey so you can flush the disk cache manually.
But I discovered that it was constantly flushing my USB stick. It was wearing off quickly.
Flush within a second is very efficient.
Drag Flush within a second to the system folder and restart.
If you start the program DebugWindow then you will see the activity of the program.
Flush within a second is an application extension.
