Convert/ migrate existing normal Tixati installation to Tixati Portable without issues? How?
Tixait x64 install on Win 8.1 Pro on SSD: Current locations and Paths:
C:\DOWNLOADS\TORRENTS\.. ..\APPS ..\OS ..\UTILS ..\FITNESS
I'd like convert/ migrate this installation to Tixati Portable one such that no linkages to settings & Torrents/ Download folders get broken.
Let's assume my new root for Tixati Portable would be:
Will even consider moving all of it into a single Root Folder and adjust File Paths so that if needed, would like to move all from SSD to another HDD or even PC.
Now, it seems like some simply moving files from Program Files & AppData into the portable structure would work while mapping every path.
But, I am not sure about these:
How & where the "paths are saved" in the default install? Some Config/ INI or Binary file format location?
Whether it stores absolute paths or some kind of relative path structure to main folder:

Download Tixati v2.43 Portable Edition
This portable version of Tixati is meant to run on a USB flash drive or other portable media. It stores all it's configuration files in the same folder as the executable binary files, and all file paths are stored in a format relative to the program executable folder.
The portable edition comes as a standard .zip / .tar.gz / .tar.bz2 archive file that can be extracted directly to your portable media. Executable binaries for both Windows and Linux are included. The portable edition of Tixati can be moved freely between both Windows and Linux systems and the configuration files are platform-neutral.
It is important you do not delete the "tixati_portable_mode.txt" file within the executables folder. This file is what triggers Tixati to run in portable mode. (The executable binaries are actually the same as the standard edition binaries.)
When running the portable edition from a USB flash drive, especially one that is formatted in FAT16/FAT32, you may experience some lag when initially loading a new transfer. This is because initializing and allocating large files on flash-based media consumes a greater amount of time and resources compared to a conventional hard-drive.
PLEASE DO NOT DELETE THIS FILE
This file will cause Tixati to run in portable mode. It will
keep it's settings and other configuration files in this folder.
If you remove this file, Tixati will not run in portable mode
and will store it's settings in the user appdata folder.
