FileCheckMD5

http://www.brandonstaggs.com/filecheckmd5.html Allows you to create hashes of hundreds or thousands of files in multiple directories and then automatically check them for defects later. I use it to check AND catalog my music collection as well as my most important system CDs. - - - I tried running t...

Not portable at all

I put it on a removable drive and then copied it into a random folder on the same system. Got a fatal error.

I didn't try putting my removable drive in another machine but that's still not very self-contained and not portable by this sites' definition.

Shame, *really* want a portable VMWare.

Annoyance

It requires that you actually HAVE an external device before it will allow you to save it to a portable format. And this portable format must have 515 megs free. Suck.

I'll keep testing though. Maybe it'll prove itself worth the extra fuss.

Shit! I could SWEAR I ran a check for that... I must have misspelled it.

Sigh

Well, this has been a fairly poor first post, then. Hopefully the PortBlocker program can be the first thing approaching a firewall for portable software.

Portable PGP?

Interested in finding a portable PGP tool Why PGP? I find myself exchanging more and more personal information and want to do so without exchanging a common password. The technology has been around for some 10 years now, we might as well use it. Unfortunately it has to be ULTRA simple or no one will...

whoops...

> Please, next time, can you check the database?

That's odd... I could swear I checked for those. Maybe the box I searched only checked the Forums and not the files listing. Apologies.

Anyhow, thanks for the reply! Hope those apps help.

LameDrop & Others

Super simple Mp3 encoder: LameDropXP: LameDropXPd v2 http://rarewares.org/mp3.html Rarewares isn't very clear about what to download (there's a lot of files on the page) but I recommend the LAME 3.97 Release of LameDropXPd (the 3.98 series is in alpha).

version 1.6 out

Since the author said they would try to fix this, could someone check and see if it qualifies as portable now?

MD5 Summer may still qualify

roddersg already reported on the program:
http://portablefreeware.com/forums/view ... =md5summer

But you can tell the program NOT to associate with .MD5 files. Not sure if his post was clear on that point.

Variety of possible portable software

This program seems portable from all I can tell. I haven't checked registry entries but I've moved it between several computers and had no issue. PSPad - My favorite text editor ... can be downloaded in a CAB format, which behaves like a zipfile. http://www.pspad.com/ Portblocker - lets you close of...
