But to keep files from being splattered on the drive without a folder, I think its better to have the files in a folder. If you don't, they will be on the root of the drive or thumb drive.I agree. Some things that create portable copies also create a dedicated folder for same, others don't, and NVDA doesn't.
If I intend to have a portable copy of NVDA on a drive where I want lots of other stuff, I do as you've said elsewhere, create an NVDA folder, and move everything there.
But knowing how NVDA behaves when creating a portable copy, I don't ever create those on a drive where I already have lots of other data, as picking up all the pieces and sweeping them into a dedicated NVDA folder becomes much more difficult. Instead, I create that portable copy on a blank drive, create an NVDA folder on the drive where I actually want it, then copy over the content from the other drive with a simple "select all/CTRL+A" to get it all at once.
This is a "live and learn" situation with each and every piece of portable software, depending on the behavior of what creates it.
