Although ever-increasing hard drive sizes mean that disk space is rarely an issue any more, files are still frequently compressed. This is generally for one of three reason - downloads, emails or backups. Even though a large proportion of people connect to the internet with an ADSL connection, compressed files are often made available for download in a bid to reduce server traffic.

When emailing files to people, it makes sense to compress files to reduce the overall size of the attachment, which speeds things up for both the sender and the recipient. When backing up files, compressing files means that they take up as little room as possible.

In order to access the files stored in compressed archives, a decompression or extraction tool is needed, and this is where Stuffit Expander comes into play. The program is capable of extracting more than thirty compressed formats including the ever popular zip file.

The simple drag and drop approach means that extraction is made as quick and easy as possible. Whether you have opted to use Firefox or Safari, Stuffit Expander works well with your web browser to allow for seamless extraction of downloaded files. With great perform and wide format support, this is an essential tool.
 

Verdict:

With Stuffit Expander installed there's no need to worry about the format of compressed files you receive - the program will be able to handle it.
