  1. Well, with AxCrypt you can use command parameters to make it “portable”. I wrote a batch script that automatically encrypt all files inside the folder “Files” after asking me for a password. After it is done, it will automatically remove any traces of AxCrypt using AxCrypt’s uninstall parameter. I also have another batch script that does the uninstalling. It sure works well but yes I still do wish for an actual portable version of it. The portable version of it is still in Alpha and have been for a very long time so I hope he works on it again.

  2. Also comes with a portable installer. Ran this for a while but found it much slower than AxCrypt at encrypting and decrypting files and folders. AxCrypt works in the same manner with Explorer right-click integration but there is no portable version. If you’re happy to install then AxCrypt would be my recommendation.
