When installing PortableApps on a new laptop I noticed that installation to cloud storage such as Google Drive is now specifically supported. I installed to Google Drive years ago and I normally just add a shortcut to the PortableApps exe file for a new machine. I've had no real problems except for Ditto which always displays a little red cross next to the exe file and 3 DLLs in the App/Ditto folder indicating a sync problem. PicPick also has some minor issues, but both apps still work okay for the most part.
I thought I'd see if a new installation to Google Drive (or OneDrive) using the specific option to install, made any difference to these issues, but wanted to ask if it's necessary to re-add the PortableApps programs from scratch or simply copy the app folders across to the new install.
I may use Google Drive again, but as my current PortableApps installation is taking up most of the available space, I planned on making a local copy of this, then deleting everything to give me a clean Google Drive for the new installation.
Of course, given the way PortableApps work, this may achieve nothing so I just wanted to run it by you guys to see if it made any sense.
There won't be any change. The platform has been compatible with Google Drive et al for a while. It's just that the installer makes it easier to install to it now.
Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
