I found only a CgyWin Installer to download.

I prefer to put CygWin on an USB flash drive and run it on various computers without leaving installation traces.

Is there really no portable version to download?

What if I install it once one computer and copy all the files to my USB flash drive?
Are there any disadvantages?
