Just bought an USB disk with 1GB capacity, it cost Rp. 260.000,- which is cheap for 1GB USB disk. I bought it because I want to use it for saving My emails, I’m using Mozilla Thunderbird Portable which can be downloaded in Portable Apps website.
Portable Thunderbird is an email client, it’s a modified version of Mozilla Thunderbird that can be runned from an USB Disk, SD Card, CD-RW and External Harddisk without installing it. What I like from portable Thunderbird are:
- I can run My favorite email client – which is Thunderbird – to check My email from any computer that have internet connection.
- All My emails are saved on the USB Disk, so I can read it on any computer too.
- I don’t need web mail to access My POP3 email when I’m not using My own computer.
One disadvantage of using portable Thunderbird is that it is slow. Because the application are in the USB Disk which can’t be as fast as harddisk, even using the USB 2.0 version, it’s still slow. But the mobility of the application pay the slowness :D
