More Disk Space™
eDisk™ has been reviewed in major industry publications. Here are some excepts from reviews:
"eDisk's speed can be attributed,
in part, to its unique background-optimizing feature, which defragments
the disk during idle time."
Comparison to Stacker: "The eDisk
cache is more flexible.... eDisk includes an option for background disk
optimization... Users more interested in fine-tuning system performance
will be happier with eDisk"
"We inflicted numerous crashes on
expanded disks and found that data recovery was not a problem..."
"The prospect of entrusting an entire
disk's worth of data to a compression product might seem intimidating.
Yet, in many weeks of using Stacker and eDisk on several drives, we lost
no data, even in extreme disk-full torture tests."
"...those who consider the highest
compression ratio to be their most important criterion, eDisk has the advantage."
Documentation: "eDisk's better
"On a speedy Macintosh, applications
on a compressed drive launch just as fast as on an compressed drive."
"...eDisk did a very good job and
resulted in a roughly 2:1 compression ratio."
"Performance in terms of system-response
degradation quickly became a nonissue in most operations."
"FWB BenchTest gave my hard disk a
higher index with eDisk than without it."
Technical Support: "...We found the
waits long and the (Stac Electronics) technical-support personnel somewhat
curt (you'll get nowhere without a serial number) and not particularly
knowledgeable of the nuances of Stacker. Alysis' support, also via toll
call, is much more accessible, and in our experience, the members of the
support staff were quite well-versed."
