Initially it would only hit the cache but I think it's be written to
disk within the remaining five minutes.
You could issue a 'sync' but I'm not sure a forced sync during, say, a
recording would be the proper thing to do, since it syncs all cached
data on all disks.
Another option would be to do a 'dd if=/dev/zero of=TestFile bs=1k
count=1 conv=fdatasync' to make sure the data gets written to disk
