Portability Notes

  • MEGA Sync do not have portable mode. It writes non essential data to Windows registry and stores its settings in Windows data folder while running.
  • The configuration file is encrypted, so you must manually set it up to sync to Data\MegaSync Downloads folder at first run setup.
  • We decide not to grant the portable launcher administrator privilege, so some leftovers are expected. MEGA Sync creates schedule tasks in %WINDIR%\System32\Tasks\MEGA and %WINDIR%\SysWOW64\Tasks\MEGA—although not runnable, and you can remove it by disabling auto update manually from the settings. It will also leave non-removable empty folder in %PUBLIC%\Public Account Pictures.
  • Make sure it exits cleanly before plugging out your thumbdrive.
  • You can help by sending request to the official developer to add "portable mode" to their future release.
