5-0 out of 5 stars Improvement on solid foundation
This indispensable Macintosh utility has been improved with this release in two ways. First, it is fully compatible with MacOS X 10.2 (Jaguar) as well as MacOS 9. Second, it introduces a new file format, SITX, which allows for considerably greater compression, though SITX files can only be opened with StuffIt version 7 and above. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

StuffIt 5.5 is a multifaceted compression utility that supports itsnative compression format, SIT, and just about every other format you can thinkof, including ZIP, CAB, ARC, TAR, TGZ, LZH, Z, and more. Like most compressionsuites, it integrates itself into the Windows interface and allows you to accessits functions by double-clicking on associated files or by right-clicking onarchives in Windows Explorer. There's plenty more to it than that, though: Theprogram seems dedicated to offering as many alternate ways as possible toaccomplish everything it's capable of doing.

The central application in the StuffIt 5.5 suite, StuffIt Browser, looks andacts almost exactly like Windows Explorer. It even allows you to perform simpletasks like moving, copying, renaming, and deleting files of any type, regardlessof whether they're in an archive. The handy interface lets you browse seamlesslythrough compressed archives as you would any ordinary file folder. Expanding oneor more archived files is as intuitive as dragging them into their targetdirectory, or double-clicking on the archive to expand it into its defaultlocation. The right-click context menu offers more options, letting you view,make copies of, choose the destination of, and further manipulate compressedfiles. Creating archives, including self-extracting ZIP files, is equallyintuitive.

StuffIt includes a trio of drag-and-drop applets that make creation, expansion,and even distribution of archives into one-step processes. Dragging an archiveonto Aladdin Expander will present you with dialog asking you to choose thedestination for its contents. Conversely, dragging files onto DropStuff orDropZip is a one-step method of creating a SIT or ZIP archive, respectively. Thelittle applets even allow you to compress files into archives and then e-mailthem or send them to removable media with just a couple of clicks.

StuffIt 5.5 is as fast and efficient as it is convenient. Its SIT format maynever replace ZIP as the most ubiquitous file compression format in existence,but maybe it should. In testing, we created a number of identical ZIP and SITarchives consisting of vast combinations of files including images (.TIF, .BMP,.JPG), audio files (.WAV, .MID, .MP3), Microsoft office files (.DOC, .XLS,.PPT), random goodies like DLLs, applications and drivers, and so on. In eachcase, StuffIt SIT files were anywhere from 5 to 20 percent smaller than ZIPfiles created both with WinZip and StuffIt. SIT files did take longer to create,but they expanded more quickly than ZIP files.

StuffIt 5.5 is a fast, convenient, and versatile compression utility ideal forcasual and power users alike. --Joel Durham Jr. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

While Aladdin System's StuffIt compression and decompression software has been available for Windows for quite a while, it's the last few versions that have really started giving Windows stalwarts PKZIP and WinZip a run for their compression.

The latest Windows incarnation, StuffIt Deluxe 7.5, includes a variety of features that make it worth the upgrade. Integrated with Microsoft Office, the OfficeReady StuffIt component of StuffIt Deluxe lets users automatically compress or compress and e-mail a file from Word, Excel, or PowerPoint with a single click. (Note: It does require at least Microsoft Outlook 98 to e-mail the compressed files.)

Aladdin claims that StuffIt Deluxe 7.5 offers the tightest compression of any zip application out today and our informal tests backed up their claim. Compressing a 50 MB video file with both WinZip and StuffIt resulted in a 45 MB and a 44.4 MB archive, respectively. And when we compacted five PDF files (with a total size of 691 KB), WinZip compressed them down to 569 KB while StuffIt managed slightly better, packing them down to 567 KB. Neither StuffIt compression job was that much smaller than WinZip, but the .6 MB on the video file could make a difference when storing it or transferring it online.

StuffIt Deluxe 7.5 also includes 128-bit encryption built in. If you couple that with its password-protection capabilities, you can ensure that your archives are for your eyes only--or for those recipients to whom you supply the password.

But it's the easy-to-use interface that has always held appeal for StuffIt users. You can easily compress or decompress files by dragging and dropping them into the StuffIt window. After you customize a few settings (where to expand an archive, what panes to have in the window, etc.), you don't even have to click through any options. And the cross-platform capability means that you can share your files with Macintosh users as well as users with Linux and Solaris machines.

StuffIt Deluxe can also search through archives on your computer--both ZIP and SIT archives--to find files that are buried within. And StuffIt Deluxe includes a full self-extracting archive-creation tool that now lets you send a text message with the archive and receive an e-mail confirmation when the archive has been opened (for sharing presentations or other work with collaborators).

StuffIt Deluxe 7.5 also includes the personal edition of StuffIt Express, which integrates with Windows Task Scheduler to automate functions such as performing backups or transferring archives to an FTP site, so you can schedule the entire process of backup and offsite upload of your data.

You can download StuffIt Expander for free, but the relatively inexpensive cost of StuffIt Deluxe 7.5 is definitely worth considering if you share a lot of Microsoft Office files or have the need to create your own self-extracting archives. --J. Curtis ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Stuffit Deluxe is wonderful
and it does compress to zip files. Almost as well as sit files. for cross platform compatibility, it does better than most programs designed to do just that. I'd purchase this product if you are looking for any sort of pc to mac transfer at all. it makes things so much easier.

It is tightly integrated with Microsoft Office.It lets users automatically compress

Compressing a 100 MB video file with both WinZip and StuffIt resulted in a 90 MB

StuffIt Deluxe 7.5 also includes 128-bit encryption built in. If
you couple that with its password-protection capabilities, you can ensure
that your archives are protected. Only those persons can open it who have the password.

You can easily compress or decompress files by dragging and dropping

1-0 out of 5 stars StuffIt
StuffIt was the premiere archiving utililty for the Macintosh. The Windows version is just an adequate product. It serves it's purpose well, but .SIT files are rather rare on the Windows platform. If you need interchangeability, look for WinZIP or WinRAR. Both .ZIP and .RAR files are much, much more common in Windows than are .SIT files. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for synchronizing laptops to desktop systems
This program does one thing, and does it well: allows you to synchronize files and folders of more than one system. I use it to move files to and from my Windows 98 laptop system and my Windows 2000 desktop PC, which is especially handy because I work on some projects on my laptop, and when I get home I prefer continuing on my desktop PC. It's a lot like the older LapLink program, and works in much the same way.

Key features include: total support for Windows 95 through XP, which means that you won't have to worry about compatibility between or among systems. Load a copy of both systems, attach a bi-directional parallel cable and go. A few things to watch out for are:
(1) Make sure your parallel port is ECP compatible. This is an issue with older systems, especially those running Windows 95, and also make sure you use the cable that is included).
(2) If you're using Windows XP you may have to download a patch from the vendor's web site. Although the vendor listed on this page is Enteractive, Inc., it's really made by Business Logic Corporation.

Other nice features include: it only takes up 1 MB of hard disk space (a refreshing change from the bloated utilities from other companies), it automatically detects port settings, and the split screen view of both systems.

If you own a laptop and desktop system, and work on the same projects on both this is an essential program that will quickly and easily make short work of file syncronization. ... Read more

Whether you want to open ZIP files, extract compressed folders or ZIP up your own data, this intuitive tool has exactly what you're looking for.

5-0 out of 5 stars Save hard drive space!
I like this program because I used it to compress a lot of image files and then I saved them on a CD and got them off my hard drive!!

These folders were too big to put on a CD until I compressed them with Alpha Zip.

Alpha ZIP is completely compatible with other ZIP compression software.I've never had a problem with unzipping any other archives.

Alpha ZIP is a really low cost solution to keeping your data backed up.Norton Ghost wouldn't write to my CD drive, so I used Alpha ZIP and it worked great.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simple and Straightforward
It's a lot less complicated than the usual ZIP tools - and easier for 'newbies' to use.

5-0 out of 5 stars Really easy to use for ZIP files and more!
Alpha Zip is a great archiving program.It's really easy to use, and it does and lot of file types like gzip, cab, and some other formats that aren't handled by WinZip.

It makes self-extracting executable files too, which is a big thing for me.I paid a lot more to get this feature with PKZip.

Really great product for the price... you can't go wrong.

StuffIt 7.0 is easy and comprehensive compression software for Windows. Compress all Internet downloads and e-mail attachments, plus Zip files up to 98 percent of their original size for easy sending across the Internet and to open up more space on your hard drive. StuffIt goes beyond basic file compression with ArchiveSearch and StuffIt Express Personal Edition.

ArchiveSearch simplifies the search process by scanning every archive to find what you are looking for. It searches the contents of both Zip and StuffIt archives, regardless of what application created them. Can't remember the filename? ArchiveSearch offers a variety of parameters to help narrow the search. Once found, it can be accessed without expanding the archive, saving time and space.

New StuffIt Express Personal Edition lets you create customized drop box applications that can automate all file compressions and transfer tasks. For example, you can easily create a drop box that Zips a file, uploads it to a password-protected FTP server, and then distributes an e-mail message notifying people that the file has been updated and posted. To make it all happen, just drag and drop the file into the Express box. StuffIt Express requires no knowledge of programming or scripting, and with its easy-to-use wizards, you can create custom drop box applications in minutes. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Having a compression program is essential in these days of bandwidthconservation--e-mailing a 100 KB compressed file instead of a full 1 MBversionover a dial-up connection preserves sanity as well as throughput. Since itsdebut, ZipMagic has been known as one of the easiest-to-use compressionapplications.

What sets ZipMagic apart is the "magic" inside: ZipMagic's neatest trick isallowing compressed--or zipped--files to act like normal folders withinWindows.Double-clicking a file compressed with ZipMagic opens it like any otherWindowsfolder, allowing you to browse the contents without unzipping it. You canrenameindividual files, open zipped files from within applications, and even runzipped programs without uncompressing them first. Of course, you'll see someslowdown when running larger program files compared to their uncompressedversions, but it's definitely a handy feature.

ZipMagic also compresses any folder on your hard drive if you add a .zipextension to its name, an excellent feature for storage. While this can save alot of space, you'll want to be careful which folders you compress.Compressingeverything on your hard drive can slow performance substantially, and somefolders, such as the Windows or system folder, won't work properly whencompressed.

The latest 4.0 version of ZipMagic also offers e-mail attachment enhancements,automatically compressing files attached to Outlook (but not Express) messagesif you choose. In addition, the ZipMagic plug-in for Outlook, as well as forMicrosoft Exchange, Eudora Light, and Eudora Pro, allows you to manuallycompress attached files from within your e-mail client.

ZipMagic 4.0 also offers 56-bit encryption--more than strong enough for theaverage user--but you'll need to register for this level of encryption as it'sonly available to users in the U.S. and Canada.

For basic handling of zipped files, ZipMagic works as well as any compressionapplication out there. The compression ratios of different types of files,suchas .doc and .bmp, are as high or higher than Niko Mak's WinZip or PKWARE'sPKZIP. Like these other zip programs, ZipMagic allows the spanning of zippedfiles across multiple floppy diskettes, it can create self-extractingcompressedfiles, and it integrates with your currently installed virus program to scancompressed files for viruses before you open them.

ZipMagic features an intuitive interface for file compression andmanipulation,but the features you'll most enjoy are the ones working in the background thatyou never even see. --J. Curtis ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Used to be great
I used to swear by (never at) this product when it was version 1, on Windows 95. I happily paid the registration fee.

But all sorts of nasty things (filesystem crashes, lockups) happened after I upgraded to V4 so I could run it on Windows 2000. The then-owners (Ontrack I think) admitted there were issues, but other than suggesting reinstallation (which didn't work) they had nothing. It was a shocker. I couldn't find anything mentioning this on the web, and now the product seems to have faded into obscurity. Maybe it's ok under SP4, I don't know, I can't afford to risk it. Shame.

2-0 out of 5 stars Great for ZIPs, use caution with other archive file types
ZipMagic is extremely convenient, and reliable for ZIP files. I've been using it for years.

But WARNING, I just found out the hard way that it can produce CORRUPT files when extracting from LZH/LHA files!

I contacted customer support and we went back an forth several times. Here's their latest "answer"

> Response (Ontrack Technical Support) - 09/20/2002 09:59 AM
> The Compression Plus library files that are used in ZipMagic only
> have the ability to view the contents of LHA/LZH files. The library

> This is a limitation of the library files that ZipMagic uses and will

> Plus. Sorry for the inconvenience.

This is B.S. because their own manual, two years old now, says how to extract files from LZH/LHA archives.

I'll be happy to provide a sample LZH file to prove my claim, to them or anyone else. It extracts just fine with lha255.exe.

Mike

p.s. I've heard that ZipMagic 7.0 is out now... I don't know if this problem as been corrected...

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good
Zipmagic difently gives winzip a run for its money! You can view zipped files with ease without decompressing them and extract just one or many files and not the whole archive. It does do a great job of compressing, better than many others, but if you want to really compress your files you have to use winace
Winace can support ALL compression types including their own .ace which is more than half the size of any zip archive.
It has any feature that you could ever want in a compression program.
You can also create self-extracting files. I use it to create self extracting files that i e-mail and they are SO MUCH SMALLER than the zip or any compression type making all those people with 56k connections a lot happier!!
...

5-0 out of 5 stars The best zip utility around
ZipMagic is by far the best zip utility available as has been true since version 1.0. The unique feature that sets this zip utility apart from the others is that it lets you view and use the files in zipped files without decompressing them just as if they were regular folders. That's a huge time saver. Also, if you install software and add ".zip" to the end of the installation folder, the files will install on the hard drive compressed thus saving hard drive space. This version can be integrated with Outlook and other e-mail programs to allow for compression of files before e-mailing. It also allowws you to integrate your antivirus program to allow for instantanious scanning of compressed downloaded files. Also, ZipMagic handles virtually every compression format that you'll ever see. Highly recommended.

4-0 out of 5 stars Make some improvements and this software would be great.
If you have a great number of files that you need to get from one place to another most people use some sort of compression utility. Zip Magic is one of those applications and for the money I found it to useful and easy to use.

The installation of the application was without error for Windows 95 & 98. Under NT and 2000 I found that I had to disable the virus program before the install would even begin. Under Windows ME I was able to install the application but the virus scanner didn't work.

The utility does compress file smaller than either WinZip or PKZip32, but the time to compress took longer. I was impressed by the user interface and the on-line help files were also very good.

The application comes with the ability to make self-extracting files and this part of the application out performed any other compression utility I tested. As for the virus scanner, I found that it didn't pick up some macro viruses so I am sticking with my current scanner.
