Portable upload download calculator?

#1 Post by rodger123 » Tue Dec 04, 2012 11:20 pm

Hi Yall
is there a portable upload/download calculator so I can check how long it takes to upload or download a file at a certain speed? Been using ones online but would be nice to have an app that could do this?
Happy Holidays

This was tricky to find on google with the results mostly web based calculators. There's actually one such utility already submitted to the database here http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=1917

Write's input history in registry though

Code: Select all

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\VB and VBA Program Settings\Paul248\TTCalc]
"Speed_Text"="100"
"Speed_Unit"="1"
"Speed_Bits_Bytes"="1"
"Size_Text"="100"
"Size_Unit"="2"
"Default_Btn"="2"
"Time0"=""
"Time1"=""
"Time2"=""
"Time3"="17"
"Time4"="4"

The database entry states that Transfer Time Calculator doesn't write any settings, which is obviously wrong according to Userfriendly's findings.

Being such an unique app, I think it deserves to be upvoted out of it's private status -- public exposure may make it gain stealth powers... ;)

Another one called Data Transfer Calculator http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/ ... f=4&t=6639

It doesn't write any settings but the UI seems a bit buggy after trying to use it.

Thanks for reminding that, guinness. On a related note, I have declared repeatedly that I'm no stealth purist -- I tend to follow the function over form school of thought; but maybe these two threads should be merged to avoid dispersion?

Anyway, maybe rodger123 would want to call on your previous offer... ;)
