Default If a USB Stick will do, why a notebook?


Travel with a notebook? It is not news. But Travel with a USB Stick? See how Murray Reeves manages his daily business during his travel with a USB Stick but not a burdensome notebook?

My name is Murray Reeves and I work for a consulting agency. My job requires me to travel a lot all over the world. And, as is very common with other business people, I have to carry me with a notebook to deal with business and process documents and data during my travels so that I can maintain good communications with headquarters and my clients.

Thanks to my reliable Fujitsu as well as my effective helper and old friends, I mean, MS office, Outlook….. They are really useful and indispensable if you have been with them for years. Anyway, I need them to work.

However, *** happens. It is last month when I was in Rio, and I had to draft a form of tender at the time. To my great chagrin, I was robed of all my valuables, my watch, my camera, my wallet and my notebook. I hope in 2016 it will be better. Then I contacted my friends there and started to work on the tender, which is the most urgent.

Until then I found how important my Fujitsu and the whole suite of my software are to me. I can almost do nothing on my friends’ computer, there was even not a standard MS office installed, not to say other my frequently used ones, and what’s more, I could not find reference file in my computer.

After this, I am thinking hard, is there a way that I can compress all my own computer system and files in to a USB stick or an external hard disk? In that way, I can just make a backup for my own computer so that when in emergency or my computer is not available, I can easily have access to my own computer system, I mean, my Windows, my desktop, my favorites, my software, my files etc, from other computers just taking a USB or iPOD.

I though I was daydreaming until last Monday when I met one of my clients who also usually go on business trip. For his kindness, he recommended Prayaya V3 to me; he said V3 can carry all of his data, documents, and computer programs into a removable storage device. So he usually goes out even without computer, and only carries a small removable hard disk. what he does is find a computer and do his business on that computer. I doubted about it at first, because I thought that was impossible. But considering all the trouble I had, I decided to have a try on V3.

I downloaded V3 firstly. I found that it was a Virtual Microsoft Windows Operating System with a size of only 6 MB; then installed it on my personal storage device. Then I installed MS 2003 into my V3-enabled USB storage device now.


I also attempted to install my other habitual programs such as MSN, FileZilla, and Firefox in it, all of them run well.

What excites me is that I can connect my V3-enabled USB storage device to the USB port of any Windows PC anywhere and most importantly, I don’t have to worry about the security or privacy. V3 runs on itself and has its own registry, so no trace will be left on the computer you use.

I think I begin to love this miraculous application.

I don’t know exactly what kind of technology it is, but it is really useful for people who need to shift to different places and computers. This is a very convenient way of maintaining your own notebook, your own way of using at fingertips wherever you are.

So this is my amazing experience and I can not help sharing it to you. I hope it will bring your life surprise as well.

I just want to say that I saw the prayaya v3 app and behold it was really a wonderful one. you just no longer need to be moving your pc up and down especially if u hav a usb disk with a bigger size. so u can install close to all the apps u require in ur system on the usb disk plus browsers for web browsin. i even had my adobe flash professional cs5 installed on the v3 plus many other utility wares that I installed. infact it's just awesome. but brother, i really need ur help for a lil thing. please, may I have the registration key for the app. i really like it but mine is a trial version and I've not gotten means to buy it online. am sorry pls. I don't know if e mails are allowed here. this is my adres (valenkaycee@yahoo.com) thanks a lot in advance,,

Default nice! just like portableapps!


this is a great find! its like portable apps except that windows is inside it.
if i may add, i suggest you also use "dropbox". its a free service that automatically backs-up your files online. thank you for sharing

Let me even ask, how would you protect the usb disk against virus attack so that the prayaya itself doesn't get corrupted.??
cos from what I see, the prayaya setup or folder and files may be vulnerable to virus attack..

This sounds great but where I travel most offices would not allow me to plug in a memory stick due to security reasons. Also there is rarely a spare PC available anyway.
