Make a Batch File - Empty Text File - Called 'tamb.bat' or 'run.bat' plain text use TextPad, NoteTab or NotePad++. This file must be in the new tamb folder you created. Make a shortcut for this and paste the shortcut on desktop. Change icon to something nice and set shortcut properties to Run Minimized.

Get a real HardDisk like a External Portable Seagate or iOmega to get speed. In case you need it faster, Install Gizmodrive in the Computer where you are working for some time, example .. while you are on a Tour. With Gizmo create an Encrypted Virtual Drive with G: letter. In this G: copy your portable apps files and it will run faster. Remember password do not set auto-mount. When you are moving again from that place, say after your tour ends, make a backup from the Gizmodrive to your external drive; Delete Virtual drive and uninstall gizmo. Keep data safe in your External drive or ColudDrive like Drop Box. Never leave any app logged in.
Your Data and Settings is your very own Soul and Intellectual Property IP....never let it get in others hands.
I now have a Cloud Journal - In the Cloud, For the Cloud, From the Cloud - I would like to call it a Thing-a-ma DropBlog. It is made of ThingamaBlog and DropBox.
