Followup to explain how the tool described in 4. would work:

I can set up the tool from rtr.ca so that when I create or edit any file on my
PC, it's temporarily saved to my hard drive.  Then, when my PC is idle or I shut
my PC down, all the changed files are moved from my hard drive to the flash
card.  The flash card reads data quickly and writes data slowly, so I think this
will compensate quite well for the slow writes.
