Timeshifting to USB flash? (1 Viewer)

I'm worried about timeshifting wearing out my harddrive.

Since I can't disable it, can I use a standard USB flash stick for timeshifting? Is it fast enough and/or will it die quickly from the excessive read/writes?

    I tried an 8GB Corsair Flash Voyager USB stick without success, as every so often I would see a slight stutter. I formatted the stick using FAT32 as well as NTFS, and tweaked various timeshifting parameters in the TV server configuration menu, all without success. There is no stuttering while using the hard-drive for timeshifting, so the USB stick has been removed from my HTPC.

    FWIW, mine's still working perfectly on a cheap 4GB stick (formatted NTFS) after a few months. Some other people however say it doesn't work for them. Flash sticks are so cheap now, why not just try it? The one I'm using only cost me £5.
