Both use flash memory chips.

You're right, but when you hear "flash drive," think "USB stick," "USB flash drive," "thumb drive," etc.

Yep! That's why the term USB stick is mainly used in the German language. Flash drive is actually far too unspecific. But back on topic. What about your file systems on your drives? :dubbio:

Just checked, turns out the USB stick was exFAT.

I hope you all know that a new profile must be initially created using the two portable flags, and don't even think to launch it without them even once!

I would be more interested in a concrete statement on the Chrome flag --disable-encryption than such absurd ramblings. :P

Most private data collecting browsers, like the infamous Chinese Opera, don't allow to use that flag! This ought to tell something! We, along with @D.Draker, discovered it's bound to Opera Customer Unique ID.

You mean --disable-machine-id and --disable-encryption? Right? :dubbio:

Yes! But Opera devs don't allow to use them.

For me, all the tabs opened & i was logged into the sites logged into when i saved the folder.

It shouldn't be like that, even if you always used those two flags. Probably your motherboard, OS and username are the same or similar?

The browser gets you PC info via GetOEMCP. Is it on XP, by any chance?

Completely dissimilar -- moved from XP running on x58 to 7 on 8th gen B chipset. Also tried on the same (multiboot) box, from XP to 11. Odd.

Wouldn't  --disable-machine-id take care of that?  Assumed that's what the flag was for.

I use Opera (Mobile) only on Android. No command line flags there, and there are only four internal flags available.

To be "fair" and "equal" - all of this flash drive talk sure sounds like rambling to me.  waka waka waka

Yeah, when A points that out to B, my thoughts go immediately to "what an A.."

So how's that for a "ramble"?

Not only that, but OT. I'm easily led astray, guilty :'(

You can try to transfer your Thorium profile from a flash drive to another one which both are formatted in NTFS. Maybe then it works.

For me, If I use always use --disable-machine-id and --disable-encryption, only extensions and saved passwords are left. Cookies are completely broken if moved to another PC.

 --disable-machine-id switches of the generating of a unique ID. That ID serves several purposes, the first one is tracking and helping police to investigate and build a case against you, if you don't behave.

It's used to prove you posted threats from your PC (for example).

P.S.

I'd always use this flag with Thorium, especially! Remember the scandal with child porn? (can be read at the start)
