Alright kids... here's the deal. I'm planning on integrating support with a documents folder in the next version of the suite as well as the apps. The goal is to make it easy to load from and save to the portable media. So, for instance, rather than 'Desktop' being the default setting in Portable Firefox, it would default to the documents directory on the portable drive (if it exists... otherwise, it would set it to desktop).
Here's the dilemna. What do we call it? And where do we put it? The original suggestion was to just have a Documents folder in the root of the drive alongside the PortableApps directory. This would mostly work well... but there are some issues with that approach... some software requires a directory located there. U3, for instance. As well as some portable CMS software (with which I'm not familiar).
So, there are a couple options:
1. We place a folder in the root alongside the PortableApps directory with a custom name. PortableDocs or PortableDocuments would be likely candidates. That way, it would be easy to find and use. But, this would cause issues in terms of having the apps all nicely contained in a single folder.... which is more of an issue for folks that may be using this locally or on a network.
2. We place a folder within the PortableApps folder called either Docs or Documents. This would keep everything nicely together and happy. It would also make it easy to move your entire portable existence from one drive to another. It would be a little harder for the user to find from Explorer, since it would be within another directory. A relatively minor issue, though.
This is mostly of interest with the Portable Apps Suite at the moment... though that will be changing. I'd love to hear others' thoughts on it.
