Editors' Review

by   / June 29, 2009

StuffIt Deluxe offers users tons of options for compressing files. So many that novice users might find the detailed options a bit overwhelming. However, thanks to its helpful wizards and comprehensive Help menu, even the least experienced user will quickly get acclimated to this effective program.

The program has a busy user interface, but it's laid out very well. Basic commands line the top and tabs keep the program's many configurations organized. We recommend that users take advantage of the help wizards that guide you through the process of creating a new archive, compressing files for e-mail, FTP, and to burn to disc. We were able to quickly add files to the archive, select the destination, compression format, and apply an encryption method and password. As soon as we clicked OK, the program immediately created a ZIP file for our selected files. On a later test, we were able to just as easily create a schedule for creating a ZIP file at a specified time. The program includes a Quick Tools feature that allows you open and extract a ZIP file, as well as create a ZIP file without the help of a wizard. Other features let you manage all of your archives and quickly search for specific ones.

Despite the multitude of options, it didn't take long for us to find our way around the program, and with a little time, novices will also find the program easy to navigate. We highly recommend this efficient program for users who want full control when compressing files.
