Compress, secure, send. StuffIt Deluxe is the easiest way to share large files online.
No matter what you do—share photos, email and transfer huge files, work from the road, or simply need some hard drive help—StuffIt does it all. StuffIt Deluxe not only gives you best-of-breed compression and expansion, it enhances your workflow, helps reduce the time you spend on file transfers and backups, and offers you file security and protection.

Access anything, anytime, anywhere
Do you speak yEnc? StuffIt Deluxe does! In fact, StuffIt is the only compression tool you’ll ever need to open up the files you receive from the rest of the world. Whether you're looking at RAR, Zip, Tar, or 7Zip archives, StuffIt Deluxe can open them all. Even the most esoteric of TAR files you receive from Linux-using friends can be opened as simply as drag, drop, done.

Worry-free backups. Just say when and where
StuffIt Deluxe is your personal backup assistant. Use StuffIt to sift through your files and back up only items that have recently changed. You can even schedule StuffIt backups to occur automatically at the same time every day. StuffIt can back up your important data to an external hard drive, to a remote server via FTP, or even to your MobileMe iDisk. StuffIt can even write your backup archive across multiple CD or DVD disks.

Protect important documents, secure file access
StuffIt Deluxe provides best-in-class protection for your sensitive files. Encrypt your files with 512-bit encryption to provide an extra layer of protection in the event that your computer is lost or stolen, your account password is hacked, your email is received by someone other than the intended recipients, or suffers some other security disaster. An elegant solution for peace of mind.

Email or transfer files easily and safely
StuffIt provides the easiest and safest way to send files via email. Simply select the files you want to send, and choose "Stuff & Mail" from the StuffIt "Magic Menu" in the Finder's menu bar. The files you want to send will automatically be gathered together into a single convenient archive and added to a new email message, ready for you to address and send. StuffIt Deluxe can even notify you when the file you’re about to send is likely to be rejected when received by another email server and can suggest alternative solutions to get your files across to their destination. StuffIt can upload your larger archive to an FTP or MobileMe iDisk, and can even take advantage of the new SendStuffNow file transfer service to ensure that your email always gets through.

New Features in StuffIt 2010

StuffIt® SmartSend

Smart Send takes the guesswork out of sending large files via email – simply select the files you want to send, and choose "Stuff & Mail" from the Magic Menu in the Finder's menu bar. Small files are automatically compressed and attached to a new email message, while larger items are automatically uploaded to a secure website via SendStuffNow. Instead of receiving a large file that might clog up their inbox, or worse not arrive at all, your friends, family, and co-works will instead receive an invitation via email. Clicking the link in the email will automatically launch a web browser and connect your recipient to a download page that has been specially created for your file. Say goodbye to email bounce backs forever! StuffIt Deluxe 2010 provides you with a year of SendStuffNow completely free of charge.

SmartSend can also be configured to take advantage of a user’s existing FTP or MobileMe account.

StuffIt® Connect

StuffIt Deluxe 2010 includes exclusive early access to a new file transfer and storage service. Be one of the first to experience the fast, easy, and secure way to share your files. Store up to 2 GB worth of files, and share them with friends. Once your files have been uploaded, you can safely and securely allow your friends to share them by sending out email invitations that provide them access to the content you’ve posted on a file-by-file basis. An invitation to download one of your files can be set to expire after a date you specify, and you can choose to manually cancel an invitation at any time. The files you upload can be encrypted using StuffIt's strong encryption technology, and you can also password protect the download links that will be used to access your files.

SendStuffNow offers all the convenience of a cloud based Internet service. You can access your account from any Internet connected Mac, PC, or Linux computer without having to install any StuffIt software. You can also access your files, and even share them with others, from the browser on your mobile phone! StuffIt Deluxe also includes a handy iPhone client that helps you to manage all your SendStuffNow shares.

I use StuffIt for one reason: it works like a charm. It's hands down the easiest program to learn and the most dependable. Never in the 5+ years I've been using your program has it froze or crashed my PC... that's what I call reliable!
