I'm looking for a dropbox (file sync via cloud) alternative which is portable

Unfortunately, I cannot use DropboxAHK (portable dropbox client based on AutoHotKey) for various reasons.

According to alternative.to there are several similar programs out there. But so far I haven't found one which doesn't require an installation.

There is TeamDrive portable which I'm currently using. But it's conflict resolution awful and buggy

    Could you expand on why DropboxAHK is unsuitable? Other suggestions could have the same problems.

  • Do you specifically want a dropbox client or would any cloud file storage provider be acceptable?

What I would suggest would be to get PortablePython and add to it any of the file synchronization python apps e.g. File Conveyor or roll your own using the Python Dropbox API.

I even found a library & sample script that will let you do quite a lot called SimpleDropbox.
