SubRosaSoft Ships CopyCatX Version 1.0
Easy-to-use copying software allows speedy duplication of disks.

Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, (June 22nd, 2003)— SubRosaSoft, Ltd., a
software company based in New Zealand focusing on disk utility and privacy
software, today announced the immediate availability of SubRosaSoft
CopyCatX 1.0. CopyCatX is an extremely fast and easy-to-use utility for
duplicating an OSX drive and is perfect for the network administrator who
needs to deploy multiple drives with identical content, or someone who
wants to upgrade to a bigger drive.

CopyCatX utilizes a method called “device copying” instead of the more
common “file-by-file” copy employed by most backup software. Using device
copy enables a user to retain every detail of the original drive, from
bootablity to the icon locations. Device copy is also a lot faster than the
traditional file-by-file backup.

“Using device copy allows CopyCatX to reap the benefit of extremely fast
disk copying. SubRosaSoft=E2s in-house benchmark clocked CopyCatX 25% faster
than one of the most popular backup software for the Macintosh when copying
of a relatively full, 20 GB drive.=E4 Explained Marko Kostyrko, SubRosaSoft=
founder. “You can save even more valuable time when preparing multiple
drives for use. =E4 Marko said of CopyCatX=E2s ability to copy to multiple
targets.” For example, our benchmark showed using CopyCatX’s multiple
target copying capability enabled us to save 60% the amount of time
required for duplicating 4 drives at a time versus the traditional
one-at-a-time approach.”

=E3The use of “device copy” techniques normally means the size of the
destination volume will be shrunk to the same size as the source volume.
However, with our partition resizing technology, we have successfully
managed to overcome the primary limitations found in other “device copy”
programs.” Marko continued. “After the device copying is completed,
CopyCatX will automatically expand the volume size to the maximum, so no
space is wasted.”

Even with such expansive features and outstanding performance, CopyCatX is
extremely straight forward to use. “CopyCatX’s easy-to-use interface was
designed for all OS X users. The whole operation can be completed in 3
steps.” Concluded Marko.
