I don't like this one at all, but it is portable.

Just downloaded the app and played around with it for a bit. Love it! Extremely functional and gives me a quick summary for a number of selected cities around the world.

You can choose what columns to display, metric or not, sorting, reports... lightweight - runs like the wind... nice!

Extremely fast and lightweight. Use this more than any other weather app. Makes it easy to compare weather reports from multiple areas.

It's a real pity that the newer versions (aka 1.2.0 onwards) aren't portable, because the whole interface has been wonderfully overhauled and a whole slew of new features have been implemented. According to https://github.com/mypaint/mypaint/issues/91, the developers basically have no interest in making this portable.

Update: please see the forum topic for details on getting the latest MyPaint (1.2.0) portabilised via the X-MyPaint launcher.

USB Disk Ejector v1.3.0.4

webfork on 21 Aug 2016
  • 4MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 19 Aug 2016
  • Suggested by milentechie

USB Disk Ejector allows you to quickly and easily remove USB devices. It is useful when dealing with devices that refuse to eject, multiple devices, or if you don't want to see the "now safe to remove this device" dialog. The program includes a variety of available advanced features including hotkeys, has available post-eject actions, and more.

Functional from the command-line.

How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch USB_Disk_Eject.exe.
Similar/alternative apps: ProEject
What's new?
  • Added option to use the Escape key to minimize the window.
  • Fixed problem with some rare drives that don't have a mountpoint. These can't be ejected in the usual way and indeed don't show up in Windows' own safely remove dialog. Drives like these are no longer shown in the program.
  • Stopped compressing with UPX. The exe is now 4 MB in size instead of 1.5 MB but it means that it uses half the memory which is a worthwhile trade-off.

aka Muttley, try to disconnect 5 USB devices using that method and then try to disconnect the same 5 USB devices with this program. Then you'll see the difference... It's just much easier, and requires less clicks in diferent places! ;)

JCATech on 2008-09-23 20:41

I'm using this program for over 8 months without any problem.
It works great, a run an autoit script that close Pstart and other custom programs from my USB drive and then executes the USB Disk Ejector.

Didn't work for me on win7 pro ent sp1!

There are a lot of great ways to compress files and folders quickly and easily, but most people are only familiar with ZIP. PeaExtractor's broad support means that it frees us up to send the latest and best compression formats without wondering if the recipient will have difficulty opening it.
