Have to say that I'm really pleased to see my old friend from the mid-to-late 90s, ZipMagic, alive and well in 2016. A brilliant product that tapped in to the extraordinary potential of Windows' APIs long before others saw the possibilities. Possibilities that 20-ish years later, too few see.
At that time, I was IT director for a prominent local architecture firm, whose users were baffled by PKZIP/PKUNZIP. ZipFolders made file compression trivial. That was a really big deal, back when 1.2MB floppies roamed the earth. We had plot files much larger than that. WinZip was around by then, but as crude then as now. There had to be a better way. And I found ZipMagic and bought licenses for all the machines.
Looking forward to becoming re-acquainted with ZipMagic, mainly for disk compression, on my wife's Asus Zenbook SSD. The "disk" is exquisitely thin, enabling it to be crammed into the exquisitly thin case. But capacity is far too small for all the pictures and videos she takes on her phone, and music she wants to sync. Problems we'd never have thought we'd have in the 90s!
Remembering DoubleSpace, DriveSpace, Stacker, et al, I Binged disk compression, and the name ZipMagic jumped off the page at me. A blast from the past. Will be installing shortly, when she can pry herself off Facebook...another problem we never knew we'd have in the 90's.
