On first search it gave an exception error, some weird characters on screen and locked up. Avoid.

The author has promptly corrected it so the download is now OK -- Thanks Vincenzo
@I am Baas - If you don't want to download again, your workaround was spot on :)
"Thanks for letting me know.
To correct this you can download the portable version again
or in ldw.ini change the line ;datapath=xxxx to datapath=. (remove semi-colon)."

Open ldw.ini, uncomment this line "datapath=" and enter the path. I am not sure if it accept relative path though but I will test and update the entry later. No time right now, cheers.

I'm seeing a portability issues with version 5.3
On my XP system I find version 5.3 writes to %userdata%
I have just now duplicated my tests on versions 4.7 and 5.0 and they do not.
Just a heads up - will look further when time permits

@SYSTEM: Thank you for this suggestion; I'd add that LookDisk has a GUI; on the other hand, Swiss File Knife is a command line tool.

@robzuc: Swiss File Knife fulfills your requirements as well.
