I notice you never answered this question from Roderick:

When the system has hung, does it respond to CTRL ALT F10 twice

I remember it as Ctrl-Alt-Num Lock twice.

It's supposed to start a system dump.

I always used CTRL ALT DEL numerous times and it did not work.  I did not know about the CTRL ALT F10 twice.

I ditched the USB drive and use a new one.  I now limit the number of files on the FAT32 root directory.  I also copy all my work to my RAM drives and switch to them.  So far, the system is very stable when working.

The CTRL ALT F10 x2 in Linux breaks out of the graphical shell which can be done from a VM.

The other one, CTRL ALT Num x2 is an OS/2 version.

They both do the same thing on OS/2, trigger a system dump if setup to do so, or if not, just a reboot without closing anything so chkdsk time after. Still tells you how locked up the system is.
