Big Free Clock and SyncBack Portable

Can someone make this portable for me?
It only leaves 13 reg keys in HKU\S-1-5-21-2098724884-2683896027-401378778-1005\Software\Contact Plus Corporation\.

This one is tricky, because each profile has a separate reg entry (there are 500+ total). But it a ridiculously powerful backup/sync program - great for USB devices. I use it to back up my HD all the time.

One possible solution would be to create a Backup and Sync profile, and to use it portably, tell users to edit these profiles instead of new ones.

Thanks,

You can easily do this yourself. Just download PortableBuilder (just search for it here) and follow the instructions, it's pretty straightforward.

re: Syncback
The latest version, I use (I actually paid for the SE version, because it's such an awesome program), stores the profiles in the program directory, so it's fully portable.

Only Synback SE does that

Syncback Freeware is an older version of Syncback, so it still writes to registry.

See the chart here.

Not fully portable, it writes the serial number to the registry and still creates ...\Local Settings\Application Data\2BrightSparks\SyncBack :?
