As I wrote on 2015-09-26, the original software isn't portable. I don't know why it hasn't yet been blacklisted from this website... Anyway, I tried the PortableApps version, but initially it didn't work: I had to rename first uTorrent_Downloaded.exe to uTorrent.exe in the [\uTorrentPortable\App\uTorrent] folder.

I still use & really like this program now using Windoze 10. I'm anal about my Desktop icons arrangement, and this program makes it so easy to line them up just as I want. Thanks to the maker for a program that I have used for a very long time across many different operating systems. Has always been flawless for me :)

Midas on 2017-04-04 12:44

It would be even better if DesktopOK didn't force an icon rearrangement with every resolution change -- in my laptop, a lot of those are temporary, resulting from user logon or the machine coming out of sleep state before, rerouting graphics to my higher resolution external screen. After some time it's galling to have to restore icon arrangement after every such hiccup. I've gone through all settings several times but up to now have been unable to disable this behavior.

FastCopy is a file copy and synchronization tool with a variety of available extras. It uses different strategies (multi-threading, buffering) to help ensure maximum device throughput, as well as optional verification to make sure data is transferred correctly. It does not use the system cache, so other processes do not get bogged down during the copy process and a speed setting is also available, including pause. It supports Unix-style include/exclude wildcards filters.

Alternatively, PortableApps.com's FastCopy Portable available.

I like it allot, it is just what I have been looking for. The interface is like MS Management Studio but better. My experience with support was great, I sent in a question via e-mail and received an answer in under 15 minutes. I HIGHLY recommend it especially to anyone who likes working with Management Studio.
