You need to be more specific on what you mean by program. I can only guess you're talking about back-up software. The 2 more popular ones are Acronis Tru Image and Norton Ghost
Also take a look at our Freeware Applications thread

Anything you put on you C: drive, you can put on an external drive. Do you mean you want to load a game on it, unplug it and take just the portable drive somewhere and play it on another computer?

Yes garmanma, that's exactly what I mean.
And, raw, thanks but I already know that site and use loads of the programs. I am just wondering if I could make some portable programs, for example games.
