10 Do you really need such frequent syncing? Bear in mind the limited write
11 lifespan of flash memory, if you have a file in your home directory that
12 is frequently updated, you could wear out the memory in a short time.
13 what's wrong with using a script that syncs your hard disk with the
14 flash drive before unmounting it?
