There was a Crashpad issue causing the APPDATA directory to be left behind that was fixed in today's releases. I can't reproduce the others on any OS. Please post a complete bug report in the support forum here: http://portableapps.com/forums/support/other_apps We have hundreds of apps and bug reports as comments on another site often won't be seen and won't wind up being addressed, at least not in a timely manner.

@JohnTHaller: Thank you for the new release. Regarding the registry entries that are left behind I will post in the forum.

fyi new website
"PasswordSafe's official website is now at https://pwsafe.org/ "

IanFromBarrie on 2017-04-01 03:52

This version does not run on XP. The last version that did is 3.38.02, which can be accessed from sourceforge through the download page on the pwsafe.org site. There was some suggestion last year that 3.40 might be fixed to run on XP, but not so far, it seems

@Emka: Can you post in forums about what you're seeing? Sometimes if you have an add-on it will write to appdata.

Emka on 2019-07-16 07:43

Hm, now I can't reproduce it... I'll post in the forums if I encounter it again. I already did so for Thunderbird Portable.

64 bit system: save 181 MB by deleting firefox folder, and renaming firefox64 to firefox. Beta, standard, and ESR work fine.

Stick A Note v3.0.1

billon on 8 Feb 2018
  • 357KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 31 Dec 2017
  • Suggested by I am Baas

Stick A Note is an unique note-taking program in that it connects to an individual application window. Notes move with the window and disappear when window is not in focused or when the program hotkey is toggled (Win+N by default). Includes available color and hotkey customization, and all notes are saved to the application folder as text files.

Useful for keeping notes on individual applications such as usability or beta testing, or for keeping notes on infrequent/difficult programs to serve as reminders for use.

Note: Some software changes the window title with program behavior, which will make Stick A Note think it's working with a separate program (for example, this happens whenever you type anything into the search box of "Everything"). Stick A Note's associated note will no longer be visible (though still saved to disk) until the window returns to it's previous state.

Category:
Runs on: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch Stick A Note.exe.

What's new?
  • Notes now supports Unicode. You can now write notes in languages other than English.
  • You can now set size of the notes up to 600 pixels wide and height. Open 'Settings' \ 'Note Settings'.
  • Enable debug mode to create a "debug.log" file of notes process. Helps to find out why a note is not showing. Open 'Settings'.

Quite an interesting idea. Something you wouldn`t think would be useful, but actually is.

chronicfireworks on 2018-02-06 11:44

The app has been updated to version 3.0.1

RainrooM on 2018-12-16 06:02

interesting to add notes to a 'folder' or even on 'specific emails' ...

Bvckup 2 v68 (beta)

webfork on 19 May 2018
  • 589KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 31 Dec 2014
  • Suggested by Midas

Bvckup 2 is a backup/synchronization tool that uses "delta" copy methods, meaning it only transfers changes to a file or files rather than recopying the entire set. This is frequently faster, saves bandwidth for network backups and can help flash media live longer by reducing the overall number of disk writes. The program can do real-time, periodic or manual backups, and also functions as a file copier that can pause and resume both local and network transfers.

Note: this program is an unsupported beta, meaning that the author provides a commercial version of the program that includes support. A previous, freeware version with fewer features is available from bvckup.com.

Category:
Runs on: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware (unsupported beta)
How to extract:
  1. Download the setup program according to your OS and install with defaults
  2. Copy bvckup2.exe to a folder of your choice
  3. Uninstall program
  4. Create an empty text file in this folder with the following content:

    SET conf-dir="%~dp0Config"
    START "" bvckup2.exe -c %conf-dir%


  5. Rename the text file bvckup2-portable.bat
  6. Launch bvckup2-portable.bat
  7. Under Options - Preferences - Software updates, select "Don't check don't remind" as this program will always suggest downloading the latest version, which is not freeware.

Note: Over time that the contents of the "Config" can grow to substantial size. If it grows too large for your storage device, start a new profile and delete the old folder.

@Midas

Yeah, sure I tested it.

Trashcan? Despite being logged in, I cannot see one.

From https://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=7616#p29747, I quote:
'Basically if you have a non-zero rank and you are logged in, you will find a "trash can" icon at the end of every comment.'

I infer that my rank is too lowly to even be allowed to take out the trash.

If two ranked users click that trashcan icon, it will be deleted, too. I already did. :)
