New MagicRAR 8 by Simon King's Utilities Group Pty Ltd. Fixes Microsoft Surface Pro Storage Space Woes, Triples Built-In NTFS



New MagicRAR 8 by Simon King's Utilities Group Pty Ltd. Fixes Microsoft
Surface Pro Storage Space Woes, Triples Built-In NTFS Compression Savings

MagicRAR 8 is the only utility for Windows offering transparent, full-disk
data compression. MagicRAR 8's full-disk compression is based on proven and
safe NTFS compression technology, but triples space savings compared to
Windows itself.

SYDNEY, Australia, Feb. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - MagicRAR 8 is
the only Windows data compression utility providing transparent, full-disk
data compression – enabling users to access all of their files and data as if
they were uncompressed, with a significant increase on their bottom line of
usable storage space.

When Microsoft introduced their new security model with Windows Vista, an
unforeseen side effect caused NTFS compression to miss a significant number of
files that would otherwise be compressible. MagicRAR 8 triples built-in NTFS
compression by fixing this bug, which is still present in the newer Windows 7,
and even the very latest flagship Windows 8 operating systems – while
preserving full security lock-down on the end-user system, ensuring no
compromises are made on system security during storage space increase.

Microsoft's brand new Surface Pro has come under fire for not providing
sufficient storage space, due to the large number of files pre-installed on
the Surface Pro. NTFS compression does not help on its own, because a large
number of these files are incompressible due to this security bug in Windows.
MagicRAR 8 successfully compresses virtually all of the files pre-installed on
the Surface Pro, in effect providing more than three times the free storage
space compared to Windows itself.

MagicRAR 8 takes full advantage of the advanced Surface Pro hardware. While
Windows uses only one thread during NTFS compression, MagicRAR 8 uses up to 8
threads; meaning the entire Surface Pro flash storage is compressed up to 8
times faster. That's more than three times the storage space delivered eight
times faster! MagicRAR 8 may be enjoyed on all traditional Windows laptops and
desktops, in addition to the Surface Pro. Space savings are especially
appreciated by SSD users, where space costs a premium.

MagicRAR 8 offers a full suite of archive management utilities in addition to
full-disk compression. These include an open-source
(https://github.com/magicrar) plug-in stack for future extensibility, Outlook
Add-Ins for transparent attachment compression and compressed attachment
previews, and a "Find Smallest Archive" Explorer right-click menu option which
compresses selected files and folders using all compression algorithms known
to MagicRAR, guaranteeing the smallest possible file sizes.
