Suggest some good directory paths to unpack any portable application to be on the local computer's hard disk.  One idea I have is  Root:\Users\NameOfUser\FolderPackageName\ and another idea is Root:\FolderPackageName\.

Are these choices good?  I assume they are good.



These would be for some program or package which is not installed, but unpacked from a zipped file and otherwise needs no installing and not come with any installer file.


Any other ideas for a good clean or safe path in which to unpack a portable package?
