Re: profile-sync-daemon - keep browser profiles in tmpfs and sync'ed

This is not a psd thing, it's a chromium thing.  I do not like chromium caching to my disk.  See: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ch … e_in_tmpfs

If you want to do this, recommend you:
1) stop psd
2) close chromium
3) backup your profile just in case you screw up something
4) Impliment the wiki's suggestion I linked
5) optionally manually delete the cached items outside of that scope
For example, I routinely delete:
~/.config/chromium/Service\ Worker/CacheStorage/*
~/.config/chromium/GPUCache/*

6) restart psd

Well on the other hand I don't have 3GB of spare RAM to cache all the Application Cache (which is what is taking up most of the space)... though choice. Thanks anyway.

You don't need to relocate all application cache to tmpfs, you can do it just for your browser.  See the link.

Thanks, I know that. However, my chromium Application Cache folder is 3GB (no idea why it is that large). I do not mean the cache for all system applications!

The one located in
~/.config/chromium/Default/Application Cache/Cache/
