Yes, it's another version of U3.
I recommended it, because you said that you like U3 but have problems with it.

So it maybe different with PortableApps. (I used it once for 10 minutes looked nice )

ok, I will try U3 on my old USB here. But I don;t think U3 will work on it.

Windows 7 64 & Ubuntu 64

Just trying to throw it out there again to see if I can get U3 to work before I try Portablepps.

It just bugs me that in 2010 with win7 I cant even access files on a stupid flash drive.

This just doesnt make any sense.

The drive shows 8g of data... so why cant we get to it?

I'll even go through my computer & cant find my files only all the garbage I listed before...

I'm thinking about just wiping this entire thing & just using drag & drop to store files.

Hi, I've got a Win RT 7 Install running and my only problem is that it doesn't see flash drives as drives to install the OS on to. I can see the USB drives for loading a driver so the installer already sees the USB drive but it won't list it for selecting a destination for the OS. So, I'm not...
