Create portable version of a software using WinRar SFX

A portable program is a piece of software that you can carry around with you on a portable device like USB Drives and use on any other computer in college and office. It can be your email program, your browser, system recovery tools or even an operating system. The coolest part about it, is that all of your data and settings are always stored on a Thumb drive so when you unplug the device, none of your personal data is left behind.
