Re: USB Flash drive lifespan + portable apps

Just get an M.2 SSD drive and put it in an external USB enclosure. You get more speed and endurance than a typical flash drive and more flexibility since you can just take the M.2 drive and plug into your motherboard if you wanted.

Re: qBittorrent

User loin2kolpotoru noted in comments It now supports --portable parameter. Anyone have any idea on how to use that or should we leave the extract instructions as-is? Well yeah its supported that for awhile now. loin2kolpotoru a little late on that news. The issue with --portable still exists. I/O ...

WuMgr (Update Manager for Windows)

I'll just copy paste the developers words from https://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/windows-update-manager.77736/ He actively posts there if you want to follow or participate in the developments. This is basically an open source alternative to Windows Update MiniTool (WUMT). WuMgr (Update Manage...

Re: PDF-XChange Editor

I recommend against updating to the latest version. The reviewer from here http://www.softerviews.org/PDF-XChange.html, he said "I uninstalled version 7.0 because it changed too many features that I liked." But I'm not sure if he meant the free or paid versions features. His review still reflects t...

Re: WizFile

Try starting the program with no drives selected. both x32 and x64 gives me 5.4MB memory usage. Then add drives to scan while its running. I added Drive C and both x32 and x64 increase the same amount of 138MB. Oddly not much of a difference on my end. Either way, the memory usage is actually small ...

Re: WizFile

Just using a lot of memory doesn't mean its a memory leak. That's not what a memory leak is. From what I tested, it seems like it just seems the amount of memory it uses depends on the number of files it scans. If I deselect all my drives from being scanned then it shrinks to about 100MB usage. If I...

Re: Best Player for MadVR Codec

Well FFDshow isn't a standalone program. Portablizing it doesn't really make sense since it needs other media players to be useful. Also development on it has been abandoned and no one uses it for its decoding feature anymore since its extremely outdated and is used mostly just for its post-processi...

Re: Best Player for MadVR Codec

I'm just an anime enthusiast. The fansub scene just led me to know more about media players and codecs over the years. Not sure what Kai Media Player is but theres KMPlayer and PotPlayer which I think as far as random bits of info out there use stolen MPC-HC code. There's also Light Alloy http://lig...

Re: Best Player for MadVR Codec

Use it with MPC-HC. It fully supports it, its portable and you can kinda make it more portable together without having to register madvr to your system. Manually add madvr to MPC-HC external filters and adjust path to madvr.ax in mpc-hc.ini to something like Path=madVR\madVR.ax . After tweaking any ...

Re: qBittorrent

and does somebody deeply tested it ? does it spread files ? thanks He means it will still use standard windows AppData directories for settings when you associate and open torrent files and magnet links. At least thats how it should work if not in portable mode. But In my case, it actually decided ...
