Performance w/Ubuntu on a Flash Drive?

Hi there,

I am currently running my PMS on a partition of one of my media storage drives. I seem to be having some issues that I think are related to the drive itself. That's not a big deal, but I'm looking to see if there's a way to run Ubuntu on a different drive. Since I don't have much space left to put in another drive, would it be reasonable to install Ubuntu and PMS on a good USB 3.0 flash drive? What is there to consider as far as performance? It runs beautifully right now, but I'm somewhat worried that I'm taxing the drive too much and I'm going to lose the drive in the near future (I have backups, I'd just like to avoid the headache).

Thanks for any input. Happy to answer any questions to help make this clearer!
