I have been using Portable Apps on a flash drive for some time. I had problems with my laptop, and dreaded going through the whole setup process for so many programs again. Then I thought, "Hey, I wonder if I can use Portable Apps on all of my PCs?"
My thinking is that all I would have to do to duplicate my programs and data on my different machines is to copy my flash drive contents to/from those drives. (I realize this probably sounds stupid to some of you, but that is why I am doing the asking rather than the answering!)
My biggest concern is Thunderbird, as I now have it set up with many accounts and tons of mail in it. I'd love to be able to just make a copy on my desktop and laptop.
Well, thanks for tolerating my ignorance,
