Bittorrent Sync v1.3.109

webfork on 19 Sep 2014
  • 3MB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by Marc

BitTorrent Sync is a synchronization tool for transferring files securely between two or more devices using BitTorrent technology. Unlike regular file sharing tools, individual connections must be enabled between specific users. It includes bandwidth controls and no set limit on file size, folders, devices, or other users you sync with.

Intended as a more reliable and secure alternative to cloud-based services like Dropbox, SkyDrive, Google Drive, etc. the program does not rely on any specific server or service. No data is saved on machines outside of those you specify. Negatively, there is no way to share a web-accessible link (e.g. "share via web").

Cross-platform with clients available for Mac, Linux, Android, iOS, and BSD.

Note: Bittorrent Sync is no longer portable. Linking to the last available portable version (1.3.109).

System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Writes to settings.dat in the application folder
Path portability: No
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Save BTSync.exe to a folder of your choice
  2. Inside the same folder create a new empty "Text Document" file and rename it from "New Text document.txt" to "settings.dat"
  3. Launch BTSync.exe
Setting up a sync: Choose a sync folder and then "standard setup" if you are setting it up on the initial machine or "I have a secret" if this is the second instance/device. Then copy the presented code and paste on the other machine's "I have a secret" prompt.

It has been known since Aug 27 that versions of Bittorrent Sync cannot be made portable after version 1.3.109. See the official Bittorent Sync forum thread on this at .

If you made the mistake of updating a portable version to 1.4.x, you can still download the workable 1.3.109 version again at Then follow the instructions for portablizing it here at PortableFreeware.

The 1.4.x version here on PortableFreeware should be replaced, because it cannot work portably.

@ Yucca: Thanks for this info. I changed the database link back to v1.3.109 and added a note.

I've been using PSPad for a number of years now and really like it. I find it much easier to configure and less complicated to use than Notepad++, its closest competitor. Also, it is still very much in development. Latest version, as of 12 Sep 2012 is V4.5.7 (2449) released 22 Aug 2012. It is my go-to text editor for everything.
There are a few annoying things with it however. It comes with 27 pre-installed languages which can be hidden but not uninstalled and there are only 5 slots for custom languages. I think that most people would not have a problem with that since the installed languages are the most popular but if you work in a shop using more obscure languages, you might be out of luck.

Shadeclan on 2012-09-14 13:59

I figured out how to uninstall the user-chosen (custom) languages but it takes a little work.
1: Open PSPad.ini (if you opened it with PSPad or if PSPad is running, save it as something else).
2: Delete the UserHighLighterName# value / data pair where the language is listed (the crosshatch is either null or a number between 1 and 4).
3: Delete the language key and all value / data pairs appertaining to it.
4: If PSPad is running, close it - then replace the PSPad.ini file with your changes. Voila! Your user-selected language slot is ready for another language!
I have posted a request to add a mechanism to do this automatically on the PSPad forum which is very active and the author of the software posts often - not what you'd expect from "dead" software.
BTW: Be cautious about using the installer - it seems to have had some problems. Use the zip file instead and unpack the files to a folder of your choice.

Shadeclan on 2012-09-14 14:46

If it's ok, I'd just like to make a few more comments:
Viniciusban writes that PSPad has no comment-out tool. I don't know if that was true when he posted, but it has one now:
Format menu / Add/Remove Comment.

Webfork writes that it has trouble handling Very Large Files (VLF). In my experience, there are only a very few editors that can handle VLFs without absorbing all available RAM and none of them (with the possible exception of UltraEdit) is as full-featured as PSPad IMHO. If I must view / edit a VLF, I always use HiEditor from as it is made specifically to work on VLFs without hosing the computer. Unfortunately, it isn't offered on but it is completely portable, writes all settings to an INI file and is very fast.

Tom mentions that the "stable" version is 4.5.4. Currently it is 4.5.6 and was uploaded about 11 months ago. Beta version, available from the forum and updated August 2012, is very stable - if the latest version is wanted, grab it from there.

PSPad has its problems but they all do - that's why there isn't just a single text editor that everybody uses. While Notepad++ is (undeniably) the most popular text editor for programmers, I find its interface somewhat obscure and its learning curve a bit too steep to make it useful to me. PSPad's interface is much cleaner and simpler and, if I don't use it for months at a time, I can come back to it without worrying about relearning anything - that's why PSPad is my text editor of choice.

Stickies v8.0b

Checker on 16 Sep 2014

Stickies work like Post-it notes for your PC. Notes can be customized and saved as styles, including fonts, colours, and buttons. Notes can be resized or snapped to each others edges to keep them lined up. They can also be hidden for a certain period, until a specified date and time, or to wake every day, week or month, to act as reminders.

System Requirements: Win98 / WinME / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Wine
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the installer and install to the default folder
  2. Copy all files (except instlog.lsl) to a folder of your choice
  3. Uninstall the program
  4. Create an empty file called stickies.ini in the application folder
  5. Launch stickies.exe
What's new? Changes:
  • Changing pen colour in image stickies also sets the text colour.
  • Performing data file a restore now includes more files.
  • In the Sleep dialog, the ampersand has been moved back from until to until.
  • Creating a DC with "DISPLAY" checked for success to try to avoid a possible crash.
  • .sti files are attached to SMTP emails again as in v7, rather than .rtf file.
  • Two new API commands: set desktop utext , get desktop utext.
  • Can now send again a note with sticky.exe using a plain text file with carriage returns.
  • The option "Prevent duplicate recurring" works again - which was broken in v8.0a.
  • "Do To All" actions from the notification area menu no longer affect stacked stickies.
  • Changing the shadow border setting in Options no longer hides all stack windows.
  • Creating a new store category under an existing category from the "Store this sticky" dialog could create it under a stack tree item, and so "lose" the sticky.
  • The option "Use alternate colour selection" no longer has no effect.
  • Orphaned content was being created with the option "Keep deleted" set to zero.
  • A crash when writing to transfer file (surrounded with "" characters) prevented.
  • Calling up the Save dialog in a text sticky no longer leaves all the text selected.
  • Having a stack on the screen with the option "Create a new sticky with a single tray icon click" no longer stops input focus reaching the new sticky.

Following my previous post: the 2nd issue is a consequence of the 1st one; anyway I'll test the PortableApps version of Stickies.

[Anonymous] PR1ME: Sweet program, but it is NOT portable. It stores its info in the Applications Data folder, it stores PreFetch settings, and all kind of stuff. All on C drive. It's dependent on those things, and there seems to be no way to break the dependencies. [2010-02-24 06:46]

Regarding pre-fetch this is entirely a Windows OS problem though some at Micro$oft call PreFetch a FEATURE.

Have you created an empty file called stickies.ini????

Instructions regarding this would be found in the TPFC entry.

[User] robzuc: I agree with PR1ME, it's not portable. After the update, I lost my notes (and recovering them was a pain). I'll look for something else. [2011-10-13 07:50] V7.1b

Have you ever tried the built-in backup feature of Stickies??????????

This program is the best for it's purpose. Networking is also cool. Portable!

A have other problem lately. On each start it creates two new stickies. I delete keyboard hook dll but new stickies are not triggered by the keyboard. Any idea?

Norton removed this as a security risk

Hi on 2010-10-01 21:45

@John It says it right there where you write your comment, above the textbox: "If your *** scanner has detected a virus in the application, please email the author directly or post to the forum. ....."

(can't even mention the word v1rus without getting a notice from Portablefreeware)

You should report the false positive to Norton.
