 Kingston Data Traveler II

I have a Kingston 1GB Secure DataTraveler II USB drive. That's a lot of drive space, but I'm not even using half of that. Here'e the things (apps) I carry with me regularly.


1. Portable FireFox – it leaves no personal information behind on the machine you run it on, so you can take your favorite browser along with all your favorite bookmarks and extensions with you wherever you go.

2. Portable FileZilla – FileZilla is a fast and reliable FTP client with lots of handy features. It supports resume on both downloads and uploads, timeout detection, firewall support, SOCKS4/5 and HTTP1.1 support, SSL, SFTP and more, all with an intuitive drag and drop interface.

3. Daemon Tools – virtual cd/dvd-rom emulator

4. VNC Viewer – RealVNC Viewer

5. HFS – (Http File Server 2.0) – a 600k webserver that allows you to setup a quick fileserver on any PC

6. TorPark – Turn any internet terminal into a secure connection (The Onion Router + Portable FireFox)

7. TiddlyWiki – a reusable non-linear personal web notebook

8. Portable VLC Player – VLC media player is a highly portable multimedia player for various audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, XviD, WMV, mp3, ogg, …) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols. It can also be used as a server to stream in unicast or multicast in IPv4 or IPv6 on a high-bandwidth network.

9. QM (The Quick Mailer) – Qm is an extremely small, fast program for sending E-mail. Its size and flexibility make it ideal for those times you want to quickly send messages or files without starting a large E-mail suite. Requires and internet connection and SMTP Server.

10. Foxit Reader – is a free reader for PDF (Portable Document Format) documents. You can view and print PDF documents with it.

11. Spacemonger –  SpaceMonger is a free tool for keeping track of the disk space on your computer.  Instead of viewing your disk as unhelpful little icons orpie charts, you see a single picture that shows you at a glance how much space every file and folder are using.

12. HoverIP –  With HoverIP you can display your IP configuration (on all network cards), perform different tasks like NSLOOKUP, PING, TRACEROUTE,  SCAN PORTS or network, and manage your ROUTES  in a very convenient way !\

 If you have recommendations, please let me know! I'd love to try 'em out! Thanks!
