ALADDIN SYSTEMS SHIPS SPRING CLEANING 2.0 UPGRADE, THE SAFE AND EASY
UNINSTALLATION UTILITY DESIGNED TO CLEAN UP MACINTOSH HARD DRIVES

Six New Features Added To Free Upgrade Of Spring Cleaning

Watsonville, CA-- October 20, 1997-- Aladdin Systems, Inc., developer of
the worldwide Macintosh compression standard StuffIt(R), announced today
that it is shipping Spring Cleaning(tm) 2.0. Spring Cleaning is the best
selling uninstaller for Macintosh users and helps users to clean up their
hard drive by searching for and removing redundant and unnecessary files,
applications, folders, and fonts.

Spring Cleaning's new features and enhancements include: 1) a new user
interface, 2) a Duplicates Remover(tm), 3) new storage folders, 4) a
document finder, 5) Aladdin's StuffIt compression technology and 6) file
archiving.

"We included our customers in the development process for version 2.0, so
we know the new features will be welcome additions. As a special promotion,
we are offering a free upgrade over the Internet of version 2.0 for
registered users of version 1.0 and 1.0.1," said Peter Thomas, Product
Manager of Spring Cleaning at Aladdin Systems.

Spring Cleaning helps free disk space in 10 ways. Each utility is designed
to search for specific types of files, applications, folders, or fonts that
may be wasting disk space and reducing productivity.

New Spring Cleaning 2.0 Features:

New Interface
Spring Cleaning features an easier to use interface to help users navigate
through the cleaning process. The new interface also matches OS 8's
platinum interface.

Duplicates Remover
A new utility, Duplicates Remover finds and lists all duplicate fonts and
files. This feature is beneficial for freeing up disk space.

Storage Folders
New storage folders located on the desktop have been added for convenience
and to help avoid accidental deletion of files by the user. The folders are
also a handy place to keep files until the user decides what action to take
on a particular file.

Document Finder
A new search button has been added to search for all documents of the same
type, allowing the user to view "like" files. This allows users to easily
group files together, move them to a storage folder or take other actions.

Archiving with StuffIt Compression
Aladdin's world renown compression technology has been added to Spring
Cleaning. Users can now move or uninstall their files to StuffIt archives
to free up more space on their hard drive.

Improved Search Results Window
Users can view search results in categories. Additional information is also
available about files, including detailed descriptions of their location.

Other Spring Cleaning features include:
o MacUninstaller removes applications and associated files. MacUninstaller
is designed to help a user safely remove an application and its related
files completely to eliminate unneeded, space-wasting files.

o Fat App Slimmer slims applications. Fat App Slimmer searches for fat
binary programs. It will allow the user to delete the unnecessary Power PC
or 680X0 code.

o Orphaned Prefs Remover cleans out unneeded Preferences in the Preferences
folder. Orphaned Prefs Remover searches for Preferences files that no
longer have applications associated with them, and can help to eliminate
them.

o Orphan Adopter assigns orphans to new applications. Orphan Adopter finds
files that no longer have the original application that created them and
lets users assign them to another compatible application so that they can
be opened and used.

o Alias Fixer repairs invalid aliases. (An alias file is a file that is
used to point to another file.) Alias Fixer will repair alias files found
during the search and display any that cannot be repaired or those that can
be assigned to a new file.

o Font Remover removes unnecessary fonts. Font Remover builds a list of the
installed and uninstalled fonts on the computer and searches for all types
of fonts: bitmap fonts, TrueType outline fonts, and PostScript font files.

o Help Remover searches for the most common types of help and documentation
files, which the user can then move, remove completely, or relocate to
portable media or network server.

o Empty Folder Remover searches volumes for empty folders. Although these
folders do not take up a lot of space, there are limits on the number of
files and folders on any hard disk. Removing the empty folders helps users
avoid reaching this limit, improves file searching speed, and helps clean
up a cluttered hard disk.
