It is possible to run Awasu from a removable drive (e.g. a USB thumb drive) and this special case requires that your data files be stored on the drive along with the Awasu software itself (since there's no point in Awasu creating a new setup for you every time you run it on a different computer).

To turn on portable mode, simply create a file called .PORTABLE (with a dot at the beginning), or _PORTABLE, in the Awasu installation directory and Awasu will create a Users sub-directory under the installation directory and put your data files there.
