Watsonville, CA-August 10, 1999- Aladdin Systems, Inc., developer of the
worldwide compression and installation standards StuffIt(r) and
InstallerMaker(tm), is proud to announce that ShrinkWrap 3.5 is now

duplicate disk images for convenient disk distribution to iMac users via
the Internet or for IS professionals for setting up Macs. Download

Who Uses ShrinkWrap?
ShrinkWrap creates the exact icon placement of disks, the appearance of all
windows, and the correct name of the disk, resulting in exact disk images
of the original. Disk images are used for backing up original floppy disks
to removable media, installing Apple's system updates and extensions,
distributing multiple disk images on floppies, mounting floppies on Macs
without a SuperDrive, creating "instant" RAM disks, distributing software
collections on CD-ROM, and verifying the integrity of development builds.
Users include:
*Anyone that wants to distribute or make exact copies of data, images, or
files of any type
*iMac users who do not have a floppy drive can use the images as if they
had a SuperDrive or floppy attached
* IS managers who want to distribute CDs, floppies, hard drives or any
other external media in an electronic form- great for setting up multiple
machines at once
*Developers who need to archive data or send electronic images to
reproduction/fulfillment houses for CD manufacturing *Any SOHO or business
user who is concerned with backing up hard drives and external media or
that wants to backup a large number of floppy disks to a single larger disk
such as Zip, Jaz, or CD

Since ShrinkWrap will make an exact byte-for-byte copy, it is safer and
easier to use than a traditional "Save As" because it copies everything
exactly as it is, including free space on the drive. This is especially
useful for copying CD's or floppies that require the actual media in order
to run. With ShrinkWrap, users create an image that the Mac "thinks" is the
actual media.

Every IS professional can benefit from using ShrinkWrap because they can
literally clone Mac setups very quickly and easily. ShrinkWrap disk images
ensure that each Mac is set up exactly the way the IS manager wants it,
with consistency- no worries that something didn't install correctly or
conflicted on one Mac and not the other.

New Key Features and Benefits:
* Easily create read/write/mount support for Apple's segmented images
without using scripting software- ShrinkWrap is the fastest and easiest way
to create segmented images. ShrinkWrap automatically creates segmented
images based on the media that is being used. Users don't need to know how
to write scripts in order to use this feature. It also includes segment
checksum for added verification-making multiple CD package back-ups easy.

* Support for HFS+- This allows ShrinkWrap to create large volume images,
that result in up to two gigabytes of compressed data per image. For HFS+
users, creating a back-up image has never been easier or more reliable.

*Option to not copy unused blocks of a volume- A volume can contain many
deleted files which, though not visible without a disk utility program, are
normally copied to an image file. ShrinkWrap will allow users to copy just
the currently used blocks of a volume. This benefits users by assuring that
only information they choose to include is copied, and saving media and
hard drive space when the image is compressed.

*Supports Navigation Services- Mac OS 8.5 (and higher) and ShrinkWrap users
see Open/Save dialogs using Navigation Services. These Open/Save dialogs
are now movable, support multiple selections where possible, and allow easy
access to recent, favorite and network folders and servers- even those not
already mounted in the Finder- integrating ShrinkWrap even more with the
Mac OS.

*Interface Improvements- ShrinkWrap is Appearance Manager savvy and has an
updated Preferences window (similar to other Aladdin products like the
popular compression access tools, DropStuff and Expander). This unites the
ShrinkWrap interface with the System software and makes ShrinkWrap more
familiar to new users.

"ShrinkWrap is the ideal method of distributing disk images over the
Internet or any network environment," said Pauline Shumake, ShrinkWrap
product manager. "With ShrinkWrap disk images, you are assured that all
files have been duplicated correctly and completely. iMac users have
discovered they save a lot of time and frustration by using ShrinkWrap
images in lieu of a floppy drive-they can receive ShrinkWrap images of
floppy contents and use them like they would any other file or disk."

ShrinkWrap's easy-to-use drag-and-drop interface simplifies the creation of
an exact disk image of the original source disk or CD-ROM for easy
transmission over the Internet. With ShrinkWrap 3.5, users gain support for
all commonly-used image file formats, making ShrinkWrap usage transparent
and convenient.

Macintosh and Power Macintosh. It contains both 68K -and PowerPC- native
