VERTISOFT SYSTEMS INTRODUCES SPACEMANager; COMPRESSION MANAGEMENT UTILITY FOR MS-DOS 6 DOUBLESPACE AND WINDOWS

 SAN FRANCISCO, April 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Vertisoft Systems Inc. today announced SPACEMANager(TM), a data compression utility developed for MS-DOS 6 Double Space(TM) and Windows that gives users more disk space and complete file management control. With SPACEMANager, users are able to choose desired compression levels for each file, monitor the data compression quickly and accurately, and exchange compressed data easily between different versions of DOS. In addition, the need for tedious mount commands is eliminated.
 SPACEMANager augments DoubleSpace -- MS-DOS 6's integrated data compression. Vertisoft Systems has recently licensed the compression technology of DoubleDisk GOLD(TM) to Microsoft for inclusion in MS-DOS 6 DoubleSpace. SPACEMANager works exclusively with DoubleSpace to deliver the most comprehensive, effective solution for data control. Users can realize up to a 20-percent increase in compression capacity with this powerful duo.
 "SPACEMANager fulfills the promise of DoubleSpace system compression by completely automating the process. Users will increase disk space and have absolute control over the management of their critical data," said Chuck Runquist, vice president of product support and development.
 SPACEMANager contains five main features that facilitate the file management processes for the user:
 -- SelectCompress(TM) gives users additional compression and precise control over the level of compression (none, DOS or UltraCompress) for specific file formats (text, binary, compressed or other).
 -- SuperMount(TM) negates the need for mount commands. Access to compressed removable media -- such as floppy diskettes, Syquest or Bernoulli cartridges, Floptical disks, is virtually instantaneous. Simply insert the media -- compressed or not -- and automatically use it, from DOS, Windows or any other application program.
 -- SpaceMonitor(TM) provides a graphical report of data compression for specified file extensions or the entire disk, giving an instant space update.
 -- SuperExchange(TM) supports the easy exchange of DoubleSpaced diskettes with any system using MS-DOS 3.3 or later, acknowledging the reality of today's computing environment. Data-swapping between computers running different systems, telecommuters, home and office data exchange, etc. are not thwarted by compressed data.
 -- FortuneTeller(TM) accurately predicts the amount of remaining disk space available before the compression process occurs. Compression management software has traditionally assumed files compress to half their original size. Files actually vary dramatically in the amount of compressed space they require. FortuneTeller takes any guesswork out of the equation.
 The product retails for $89.95 and includes both 5.25- and 3.5-inch disk media. It is available through several distribution and retail channels.
 Founded in 1988 and headquartered in San Francisco, Vertisoft Systems Inc. designs and markets computer disk management, printer and utility software for DOS and Windows systems. Its DoubleDisk product, introduced in 1989, was the first on-the-fly, data compression software for the PC DOS market. With over 500,000 current users, Vertisoft Systems' products are distributed worldwide through direct marketing and software distributors. The company's OEM agreements include Microsoft, Power Up! Software, Intuit, Bondwell, Sharp, Olivetti and APPROACH Software.
