Subject description: Is there any way to change this?
 

I'm looking to make it so changes are written back to the usb as soon as they are made, rather than syncing at shutdown. I am not concerned about read/write cycles. Is there any way to do this?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, but spy1134 mentions he's not worried about the read/write cycles.
That either means he has an uncle with a truck full of usb keys or he has found out that usb keys nowadays can handle being constantly written to. ( just like SSD drives)

Could the latter be true?

Correct. And this is the relevant part of smokey01's reply:
If you need to save your important work more often then press the target icon.

That would be the white "save" icon, at least in Puppy 4.3.1.
From what I understand, this icon only appears on desktops that run pupsave file from USB flash.
(I'm not sure how it appears in other versions of Puppy, as I haven't tried them.)

If you click Menu > System > Puppy Event Manager, then open the 2nd tab from the left, you will see a window where the Default Setting is set at 30. This tells Puppy to write changes to the USB Stick every 30 minutes. If you change that setting to 1 it should Save to the USB Stick every minute.

Another way might be to change the Boot Parameter in your configuration file from "usbflash" to "atahd" (minus the quotes) then re-boot and Puppy should behave as if installed to a Hard Drive (which means writing to the disk all the time).

Back up everything before trying these things, so if it all goes "pear-shaped" you can go back to your original system settings.
