I was just about to write about DBP when something came up. Will continue as soon as I can.

Here's a guess at a possible context:

may mean DropboxPortableAHK, using an old version of DropBox ( 1.1.45 )
Dropbox is cloud storage (like a flash drive you can't forget)
Drew Houston, as MIT student, made DropBox after repeatedly forgetting flash drive

see prior discussion on DropboxPortableAHK:

some felt: Dropbox Portable AHK was NOT secure
but you can set access password to encrypt its settings

instead of DropboxPortableAHK, alternatively consider:
Dropbox (JPE Launcher): http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/ ... =13&t=5675
http://www.getcloudexplorer.com/
http://storagemadeeasy.com/personal_solution/
https://www.multcloud.com/
http://www.zeropc.com/

can use multiple Dropbox accounts, on same computer at same time with DropboxPortableAHK
