Re: Time to make a portable etc

hurrikennyandopo ...


usually some of the drives USB ones and sticks are pretty quick. I ended up shutting down the computer after 20 or so minute It was a 16 gig stick formatted correctly.

Yet another stick may be very quick in less than a minute.

I do think in cases like this one I wonder if a cancel button could be put in or do you just grin and bare it until it is done? how ever long it takes.

Subject: [nvda] Time to make a portable etc

Hi guys

I am in the process of making a portable version of nvda that I am
putting onto a usb stick. I downloaded nvda 2019.2.1 then clicked on it
to make the portable version as usual

Has any one on the list when they have gone to do this have it take 5 or
10 minutes or longer? I thought it might of been this 16 gig stick been
slow and the message still is not telling me it has been done.

But I was also thinking because you can not close the screen etc until
it is done could maybe a cancel button be put into it if it takes this
period of time to cancel the process.

It might of been quicker to make it on the hard drive then copy it across.

I can not stop the process unless i shut down the pc.
