New ZIPmagic 12 Doubles Storage Space for Tablets, SSDs, and Servers.
ZIPmagic 12 is the the first and only data compression product for Microsoft Windows with transparent disk compression. ZIPmagic 12 includes not one, not two, but three full disk compression solutions. All together, these solutions cover an entire gamut of applications – from virtual or private servers on the cloud, to consumer applications in the form of fixed storage tablets or small SSDs. ZIPmagic 12 effectively doubles all storage space, in all scenarios, and in a single click.
“Necessity is the mother of invention. Developing ZIPmagic 12 on my 64 GB Surface Pro, I often ended up running out of disk space,” says Simon King of ZIPmagic Software. “I knew there had to be a way to double my tablet’s storage to at least 128 GB, if not more. I offer you three new tools as the fruit of my labor – mission accomplished!”
ZIPmagic DriveSpace is compatible with all Windows environments. DriveSpace, while offering the least compression savings of the three, is the most versatile. DriveSpace runs on all Windows versions from Windows XP 32 bit through Server 2012 R2 64 bit. DriveSpace does not require console access, and as such may be used to compress live Windows Server operating systems with absolutely zero downtime.
ZIPmagic DoubleSpace is compatible with 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Windows 8.1 Update 1. DoubleSpace lives up to its name and literally doubles storage on disks it compresses. The only drawback to DoubleSpace is that it must restart Windows in an exclusive mode for disk compression. While this renders DoubleSpace unusable on servers without console access, DoubleSpace is the only solution to double storage on fixed storage tablets and SSD boot disks.
ZIPmagic Stacker is compatible with 64 bit versions of Windows 8 or newer. Stacker offers the absolute best compression rates in the trio, but it cannot be used to compress boot disks. Storage disks are an ideal target for Stacker, especially considering that Stacker even eliminates redundancies across files.
All three ZIPmagic full disk compressors run in a single-click operation mode, automatically detecting and applying the most optimal settings for the target system; such as optimizing for the number of available CPU cores, and leveraging speed boosts from underlying SSD hardware that are automatically detected.
ZIPmagic 12 is also a full-fledged archive manager, supporting 110 archive types including ZIP, and newer compression formats such as ZIPX for JPEGs and 7ZIP for program data. ZIPmagic 12 also integrates with Microsoft Outlook; delivering transparent email attachment compression, as well as secure previews for archive attachments in received email.
