I've been using this utility since version 1.0. The author has made many improvements since then. Basic, functional, easy to use.

[steerpike] I number or letter the items' entries when I want a particular order.

I much prefer this to the PortableApps.com menu and all of its tacky looking clones. PS Menu is ok but I find it little bit cumbersome. SyMenu is a nice option but it requires the system to have dotnet 2 on it which for me defeats the purpose of being truly portable.

This is simple yet effective and is smart enough to adjust the drive letter path if it changes due to being used on different computers.

A simple to use and easy to set up front end for accessing programs on a usb drive. There are some slightly more sophisticated programs available but this is more than adequate. The only shortcoming that I noticed was that it is not possible set the order of items in the menu created.

I've been using this for some time, and it works like a charm. Easy to use and works great on several of my flash drives. Recommended.

Must give a 1 because the program don't see my USB-Stick, which I've set to Letter A:\

I give it a 3 because it sounds like a promising replacement for Sandisk's U3 crapware.

But when I try to download it my employers firewall blocks it and gives this message...

The author might want to pick a different host for their downloads.

I bumped it up to a 4 after I downloaded it at home. Definantly a perfect replacement for Sandisk's lame U3.

The one thing thing that would make it a 5 would be the close all running apps also eject (safely remove) the flash drive. That was the ONLY thing good about U3.
