Big "Other" Category

Submitted by Simple on February 26, 2018 - 9:09am

Subcategory "Other" of category "Utils" have 70+ applications. It's more than all applications of "Games" category.
At the same time categories "Font Tools" and "Time Wasters" have only one application.
I have a suggestion for administrators of this site.
Maybe divide "Other" category into several subcategories.
For example:

Checksum Computing
Checksum Control Portable - create and verify MD5/SFV checksums
Rapid CRC Unicode Portable - CRC/MD5/SHA hashing
winMd5Sum Portable - check md5 sums to verify files on the go

Problems downloading Q-Dir

When I try to download Q-Dir, I get the following message (which I have never seen before):
The link you clicked was blocked. This is most likely due to a site linking directly to a downloadable file. If that is the case, you can likely find the file you are looking for here:

Suggestions/Help for copying from 1 Hard drive to Another

Submitted by DADSGETNDOWN on February 19, 2018 - 12:33am

Hey there, I have a Sata Hard drive that for some reason stopped booting on a computer with Windows XP Pro on it. I just tried to make it a second drive on a different computer on Sata1 port but the Win7 Computer sticks at a colored loading icon until I unplug the data cable, yes with it still running and it then finishes the boot, the bios does see it. So that might be one problem you could help with.

thank you for the adding of CCleaner in PortableApps.
I meet a little problem. The functions [add "run CCleaner" option to Recycle Bin context menu] and [add "open CCleaner..." option to Recycle Bin context menu] don't seem to work properly. Everytime I launch CCleaner with a right mouse button click on the Recycle Bin, a new [ccleaner.ini] file is created with default settings. And it's very, very annoying.

Best regards

No more x86 / i586 Java builds from Oracle

Submitted by Anton_D on January 21, 2018 - 6:51pm

Oracle has officially dropped x86 / I586 builds for all platforms back in September 2017 with release of version 9. The version 8 is officially maintained for one year, so there would be no more updates for it after September 2018. Till then everybody should jump to the newest version, which would be 11 at the time. They also adopted rapid release cycle, with a new version every 6 month and probably some LTS version. But the latest isn’t important for this topic.
