I have a tiny USB Micro-SD Card reader, for a couple of dollars, on my keyring amongst other gadgets. The advantage with these as opposed to USB Flash memory is that you can carry as many tiny Micro-SD cards as you want, data or protableapps. So as much memory to carry in tiny Micro-SD cards as needed. Using the famous portableapps program with it’s Windows style popup menu of portable apps which reads the PortableApps on the USB (or even better the Micro card in usb diongle as in my case) as the correct drive, which is what I do.

You can also make self extracting exe files from any data files/folders with 7-zip which is completely free with no curtailed feature for 30 days or monthly pricing upgrades etc. Just click the SFX option. With or without password. With AES-256bit encryption. Also if you have bought (or trial version of) WinRar, it too has SFX options to make self extracting exe files/folders, again with or without password.

7-zip is completely free though and Open Source so it will always go on as it is hugely popular and some devs will always pick up the workload.


SFX in Win GUI, can be done via command-line too:

Bill, I am not speaking about Andy’s post, but the fact that two of the posts have actual advertisements in them, which seem to have nothing to do with the people who wrote the posts.

Andy, as you say, makes a positive contribution to tbe forum.

As I explained to Bill I have no concern with Andy or anyone else’s post.

By the way your post had an ad in it from a consulting service. Maybe the ads just showing up on Android.

Steve, the ad in your post is from JIRA Consulting Services.

Chris, I have never seen these ads before. But they appear full l width of the msg about halfway thru the post, or just before the quoted portion is shown. The ads are invasive, and quite literally break a post into parts.
