I have just installed SparkSDR on an old pc running lubuntu to use for WSPR. It has a small mSATA SSD drive. The drive reports it only has 34% of its life left. Every receive cycle a file is written to the drive, decoded and then deleted.
I was wondering if it was possible to set up a small ram disk and have SparkSDR write there instead, reducing the wear on the SSD? Even better if everything could be buffered in normal RAM without having to set up the Ram disk but I guess that would mean some mods to the WSJT-x source that are unlikely to happen.
Many thanks for the fantastic software
