Root Directory for flash drive?
by dford3772 - 9/20/05 2:29 PM
I'm using Windows XP and a 512 flash drive. I have downloaded John Haller's portable Firefox,Thunderbird,
and Sunbird. They work fine but Haller and PC mag in
their article on same recommend creating a root directory for the drive but do not tell how to do it.
Is anyone out there using portable apps who knows how to create a root (C?) directory for this drive? I've
just downloaded another portable app from Haller and
he talks about unzipping this file into the profile
of the earlier Firefox version. I know how to unzip files, how to delete on the flash drive but that is
the extent of my knowledge. I think the directory will
create a way to bring the drive up on my PC and will
make updates and changes possible----not sure. My
CompUSA drive does not require drivers.
How to make the directory? Do I really need one
and will it change anything about the portability of
the flash drive? I've Googled and can't find any answers. Please help.
