|Git installation in USB Drive that works in both OSX and windows?|
Use a normal git repo on the usb drive.
Use UTF-8 as encoding for all the files to make sure that you won't get any
problems with that
Before you go to your windows machine, make sure that you have checked out
the branch that you want to work on.
Use the checked out files and work with them.
Back at your mac, you can commit and push and do whatever you like.
Use your smartphone as usb drive. If you have Android, you can install
botbrew on it and use git on your mobile. With that you can do your git
operations while at your windows pc.

No, mklink isn't going to do it for you. What you need to do is to create

I tested your code and it runs properly for me. The only way I could
reproduce your error is by running it with an unmapped drive (Changed to
z: ext.txt which is not mapped).
Make sure that the computer RUNNING the program has the specified mapped
drive on their computer. Just because the program may reside on a server
and the server has the required mapped drives, doesn't mean that the
clients running the program have the same mapped drives.

According to the documentation, Files.copy() requires at least one of the

documents in your Google Drive" which is the one you want to avoid
https://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive.file: "View and manage Google Drive
files that you have opened or created with this app." Which means you can
freely create any file but only open the files your app created. You can
only copy a file you created, but you cannot copy any other files even if
it is public.

configuration data in your Google Drive" Which only lets you control your

|Error while Retriving files from google drive using drive API. “Calling this from your main thread can lead to deadlock|
You should do any code that could take a long time such as I/O or network
activity on a different thread. In your situation your file retrieval would
be best done within an ASyncTask.
The reason for this warning is because when your code is being executed to
retrieve the file from Drive, the code will block until the file retrieval
has completed, this means that nothing else within the program will be able
to respond, i.e. GUI will not update and input from the user trying to do
stuff with the GUI will not be registered. After a few seconds, if the file
retrieval still isn't complete, then the user will be presented with an ANR
(Application Not Responding) message. This will either give the user the
choice of waiting, if their patient, or most likely force closing your app.

It can not be guaranteed this is possible unless you have high enough
system privileges that you can change the global path. There is really no
way around this on most computers that you do not own, which I imagine is
the main purpose. In those cases when you have enough privileges (it is
worth a try some systems still allow this for regular users but many others
do not) you can use:

You can figure out the drive letter without input, if you know the disk

|Monitoring changes in Google Drive files for whole domain using Drive API|
Domain-wide delegation simplifies the authentication portion for your app
but you'll still need to auth as each user to get their files and changes.
It may be possible for your app to "grab" all files and make itself (or a
special user) the owner, then you just have one user account to scan but
the "grab" process would still need to run at regular intervals to find new
files created or uploaded by end users.
I believe most apps that need to scan content at this level do it via cron
jobs or AppEngine task queues which make it easy to chunk up the scans
throughout the day. Generally they expect to scan each user account once
every 24 hours or so.

The message tell that CPU doesn't support the required CPU features like

May be this can help you:-
Unlike Windows Vista and 7, Windows 8 (as from build 8400) is not
compatible with all models of the Pentium 4 processor.
This is due to the fact that Windows 8 requires a processor compatible
with the following functions: SSE2, PAE and NX bit. All Pentium 4 are
compatible with SSE2 and EAP: the problem may come from the NX bit.
First, make sure your Pentium 4 model supports the NX bit: for sockets
423 or 478 processors, then it won't work (in most cases).
For sockets 775 processors, it can be compatible. If the CPU supports
NX-bit, you can install Windows 8 32-bit or 64-bit (it
depends on the models!).
