    If you mean a portable program then you can use USBDLM that way or install it as a Windows Service which will run in the background. Read the USBDLM_en.CHM help file 'Installation' section for more details.

    That's what I use.
    You can change the letter that is being used, but it is not sticky, hence USBDLM.
