Ready to drop Dropbox. Post alternatives, please

I have been using Dropbox forever, it seems -- e.g., check some contributions I made wayback in a related topic: https://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=8352. It has been one of the few programs I consistently install on my various systems (including Android) because it allows for ea...

Re: Windows 9 is... Windows 10

A review of a Windows 10 upgrade. Educational. Was the whole exercise necessary? Of course not. If only there was a reward at the end of, I could be a happy little nerd. But there isn't any, just the unbearable lightness of being, except this one isn't written by Milan Kundera. @ https://www.dedoime...

Re: Alternatives to CCleaner

As the topic is more of a generic nature and not about a single program, I'm moving it to "Discussion".

Please tell me if you disagree.

Compounding the fact that those virtual machines are leaving less and less to the user's discretion -- including who to trust -- pretty much sums my stance and displeasure.

Re: Notepad3 - text editor

I've been impressed by some of the changes I've seen to Notepad3 over the past year. This program is entering a crowded field of programmers' editors and is finding some new and intelligent features to include. Having followed Notepad3 for a while now, I fully second that -- it's the most interesti...
