    "Full Disk Compressor Amazing"

    June 27, 2012   |   By RAR1111

    Version: MagicRAR 5.0

    Pros

    Multiple CPU cores used to increase speed.
    Balances all the workload across threads.
    Beats Windows NTFS compression.
    Very fun conversion progress to watch!
    Reprocessing mode to manage locked files.

    Cons

    Does not provide alternate algorithm to NTFS compression.

    Summary

    I have a pretty small SSD, as they are very expensive. I used MagicRAR's Drive Press utility to compress this SSD. I had tried NTFS compression before but this one actually fared much better. I have a lot of free space on my SSD now. They explain on the site how they are able to increase NTFS compression, it has something to do about a Windows bug. I am very impressed someone thought of this!

    "Beats Cocktail of WinRAR / WinZip / 7-Zip"

    June 26, 2012   |   By JasonStrathmore

    Version: MagicRAR 5.0

    Pros

    Eliminates need for cocktail of three archive programs.
    Only utility I found that can compress into all major formats.
    Has built-in full disk compressor which is also unique.
    Unique Explorer folders feature is super convenient.

    Cons

    Find Smallest Archive feature doesn't have simultaneous mode.

    Summary

    I have been using a cocktail of archive utilities for years: WinRAR / WinZip / 7-Zip. I have to install and use all three programs because each has some weakness or the other.

    With MagicRAR, for the first time I have found a program that eliminates the need for this "cocktail" of software with a single, well-designed utility.

    It is super convenient. After being able to open 7Z and RAR files like folders in Windows, I find myself I cannot go back to a cocktail of three strange user interfaces.
