compression and file transfer tasks for automation convenience.
StuffIt Express allows users to easily create custom drop box
applications, configurable to run a specific sequence of tasks. Users can combine many steps like zip, FTP, send email, and more, in one
step.

5. Search for files located in Zip and StuffIt Archives:
ArchiveSearch(tm), can easily search for files that are buried within both zip and StuffIt archives, making it easy to quickly find related groups of files without having to manually decompress and search through each archive.

6. Ensure Archive Access By Anyone With Custom Self-Extracting
Archive Tool: StuffIt can create "self-extracting" archives (SEAs) so any computer user can open them without having any unzipping software installed. This .exe creation is free and is compatible with existing zip archives, so users can build a self-opening file based on an archive created with any zip utility.

7. Add Files to an archive based on user defined criteria: StuffIt provides an easy way to specify multiple files and folders from various locations to be added to an archive in a single action and to specify that only certain files from a target folder be added. The list can be saved as a file, to be retrieved in the future.

8. Schedule backup archives to protect contents of important files and folders: With Stufflt Express, users can create a custom drop box application specifically for backing up and protecting data. An Express Box application can be created to include the Windows

"Scheduled Tasks" utility so that backup archives of important files can be created at a specific time every day, or week. Users can also configure the scheduled events so the archive is automatically sent to another machine on the network or an FTP server.

9. Access and create the popular formats found online Powerful
compression gives users smaller files that transfer quickly and safely. *StuffIt Deluxe allows users to access the following formats: StuffIt, Zip, RAR, Arj, Arc, Bzip, Gzip, Tar, Tgz, Lha, CAB, Private File archives, Uucode, B64, and MacBinary, and BinHex encoded files.

*StuffIt users can create the following formats: StuffIt, Zip, Gzip, Bzip compression, Uucode and BinHex encoded files. **note: StuffIt protects file attributes for PC and Macintosh files. It's Unicode compliant, so non-roman named files or those with 2-byte characters will be preserved when accessed. StuffIt Windows XP will retain any information stored in an NTFS file stream.

10. Browse and Manipulate Zip and StuffIt archives
StuffIt allows users to browse the contents of an archive in a familiar Windows Explorer-like interface. Users can extract single files and add new files to existing archives. Users can also open files directly from within an archive simply by double clicking.
