Wednesday, September 6, 2017 BitTorrent Portable, The Original BitTorrent Client!
"For the most part – thankfully – it's possible to ignore the ads in BitTorrent. In use, having spent a little time setting up the options you want to use, it’s the sort of program that will just run in the background and only require very occasional interaction." —Mark Wycislik-Wilson, (September 11, 2017)
"Good product, overall. Enough for me to loyally stick with them for years." —KINGOFSTARFOX (a user), (Jan. 20, 2016)
"One on the best P2P products ever made" —LEOBER83 (a user), (Aug. 23, 2015)

Portability Notes

  • BitTorrent do not have portable mode. It writes non essential data to Windows registry and data folders while running.
  • 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.
