OK might be a silly question, apology from a Newbie - but....
I've downloaded & Installed OOo 3 portable onto my USB flash drive (to try out)
Things run OK (a bit slow though) - however I like to have a 'backup copy' of the Flash drive in case anything goes wrong with it
When I try a simple windows 'copy/paste' from USB onto my local PC harddrive I get problems with the files:-
Which I'm guessing is due to the length of the path used (I stick all my runable usb programs in 'X:/Programs/Runable from USB/' directory)
So the path is something like:-
K:\Programs\Runable From USB\OpenOffice 3 (Office Suite)\Data\settings\user\uno_packages\cache\registry\com.sun.star.comp.deployment.?????.PackageRegistryBackend
I've tried deleting them but each time I start up OOo - they are recreated
What are these folders for & is there anyway of stopping them from being (re)created each time I start up OOo ??
On a slightly different note - is there a way of 'slimming' down OOo portable installation - e.g. what files can I delete/remove safely
Looking at the actual files - I believe I don't really need all the different languages, all the graphics in 'gallery', 'fonts' - but is there any other files that can be removed (e.g. I've seen java/python/scripts mentioned which I don't think I'll need since I've got no [real] idea WHAT they are)
Many thanks in advance (& looking forward to the final OOo portable 3 release)
EDIT: Ok I've managed to (partly) my own question - Yes the directory path IS too lon to 'just copy' over as a backup
I've changed '/Open Office 3 (Office Suite)/' to just '/Open Office 3/' & file copy over fine now
