Uniquely, it includes a program lock to password-protect the interface.

Such garbage software. The author is about the biggest asshole I have ever met in the development world. Seriously, if you think this is an opinion go read the issues forum. as ransom for portable mode, he's demanding people give him money. You really can't make this shit up.

I gave qbittorrent an honest try. I can't get magnet links to associate with the portable version anymore. I even tried running it in Sandboxie and manually installing a reg entry.

This app should be reported and removed from PF as it constantly spreads its files all over my computer after magnet links are associated.
IT. IS. NOT. PORTABLE. and based on what the way the dev is screaming at its users, it's becoming donation-ware.

I encourage you all to petition mods to remove this app.

@stisev tell us what you really think lol, I will agree this software does have some problems that don't seem to get addressed so that's why I'm passing on this. :)

Installed on my harddrive and tested the portable version again, under Windows 7 64 bit.
Settings and data are now written in the application folder.
The user profile folder contains an empty folder C:\Users\my_name\AppData\Roaming\MSD_Soft

Ennovy on 2015-04-10 09:31

MSD Organizer uses the folder I mentioned (C:\Users\my_name\AppData\Roaming\MSD_Soft)for temp files.
The files in that folder are deleted on exit.

It doesn't even run and hangs if you don't allow it to connect to the Internet (at least the first time). Tried three times and dumped it for good after about one minute.

I have version 3.41 and use it occationally.

@infestedtassadar-x17;
I found this in the Help file:
"All versions of iDailyDiary have always encrypted the diary data files, whether they are password protected or not. From version 3.00 the encryption has been improved to a 128bit Blowfish cipher."

Mixture on 2011-12-29 00:35

@infestedtassadar-x17;
If you need a formless text editor with strong encryption, please try CryptoTE 0.5.390.

@Vavo: with the exception that the files reside encrypted on my HD at home and not unencrypted on an unknown and far away server which you have no control over.
