  • Released on 21 Sep 2017

CarotDAV is a simple client for many remote file storage services including AmazonCloudDrive, OneDrive, DropBox, GoogleDrive, Box and SugarSync and as well as WebDAV, FTP and IMAP. Supports various view settings including detail, small/large icons, drag-and-drop interface, file transfer progress window (with speed listings) and a variety of sorting and grouping options. Allows for multiple instances to connect to multiple different services, but doesn't yet support transfers between them.

Includes dynamic encryption and decryption, automatic file-splitting (e.g. OneDrive's 25 MB file size limit) and doesn't store passwords in plain text if a master password is set.

I'm using CarotDav to access my google drive. All's working fine.
But I would like to create a network drive using de build in WEBDAV server.
I use the predefined settings ip=127.0.0.1 port=12346 en choose auto mount drive.

But I get the following error:System.Exception:58 bij CarotDAV.NetdriveManager.MountDrive

Using CarotDAV to connect to de WEBDAV server isn't working either.
Has anyone succeeded in using the WEBDAV server?

Johndm: I don't have access to a WebDav server to test this. You might try reaching out to the developer.

SRWare Iron v61.0.3200.0 Updated

billon on 23 Sep 2017
  • 160MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 23 Sep 2017
  • Suggested by freakazoid

SRWare Iron is a privacy-enhanced web browser based on Chromium, the open source project behind Google Chrome. By default, Iron sends out less information as compared to Chrome (e.g., creating a unique user ID or the submission of entries to Google to generate suggestions), making it potentially more privacy friendly and secure in operation.

Iron supports both official and unofficial themes and some extensions from Chrome. Additionally, to enable blocking ad servers, a 'adblock.ini' is present in the program folder, and Opera's 'urlfilter.ini' can easily be converted to Iron's accepted format by following these instructions (or see comments below).

Note: It is recommended you change the homepage. The Iron default homepage may contain ads or links to fake adware-containing downloads.

Alternative packages:

  • Iron Portable (adds password portabilization, path portabilization, registry cleanup and Java support)
  • X-Iron (idem)

Category:
System Requirements: Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? No. It creates some registry keys in 'HKCU\Software\Chromium'. Start with --incognito parameter to prevent saving history and cookies after program closes.
Unicode support: Yes
Path portability: No
License: BSD
How to extract: Download the "Portable" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch IronPortable.exe.

XP/Vista is no longer supported but the last release version 49 is available.
Similar/alternative apps: Chromium Portable, Google Chrome Portable
What's new?
  • Native support for JavaScript modules.
  • Bug/Security fixes.

Just noting that Iron Portable and SRWare Iron Portable, as well as GoogleChromePortable and X-Chromium, create these registry keys:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome\Extensions

HKU\*\Software\Google
HKU\*\Software\Google\Chrome
HKU\*\Software\Google\Chrome\Extensions

Also note that the HKLM key is hidden in regedit. I can see it being created using Regshot and get to it and delete it with an alternate registry editor. I don't know how the key is protected. (Any info appreciated.)

The only Chromium browser that doesn't create these keys is Chromium Portable (http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2169).

They also create the following folders/files:

C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Crashpad
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Crashpad\metadata
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Crashpad\reports
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Crashpad\settings.dat

random17: thanks for the info but, as that addresses multiple programs and not just Iron, posts like that really belong in forums.

Can help determine whether the passwords used by other users are secured enough, without knowing or watching their actual passwords. Great for administrators concerned about security concerns caused by their users.

Currently scans the passwords of Internet Explorer 4.0 - 11.0, Mozilla Firefox (all versions), Google Chrome, Chromium, Dialup/VPN passwords, MSN/Windows Messenger, Microsoft Outlook, Windows Live Mail, SeaMonkey, Opera (version 15 or greater), Vivaldi and Yandex Web browsers.

All programs that claim to do password auditing should work this way. Admins don't need to know the actual password, just if its complex enough.
