VERTISOFT SYSTEMS RELEASES SPACEMANager v1.5; ADDS UP TO 40 PERCENT MORE DISK SPACE TO MS DOS 6.0 DoubleSpace

 SAN FRANCISCO, June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Vertisoft Systems, Inc. today announced the availability of SPACEMANager v1.5, a data compression utility that gives MS-DOS 6.0 and Windows users up to a 40 percent increase in disk space over files already compressed with MS-DOS 6.0 DoubleSpace. SPACEMANager is offered at an introductory price of $49.95 through Nov. 15.
 Because Vertisoft partnered with Microsoft in developing DOS 6's integrated data compression, the two products work together seamlessly to give users increased disk space and complete file management control. SPACEMANager is an easy to use utility. Installation takes less than five minutes, and operation is transparent to the user.
 "Every computer user can benefit from system compression, especially with today's mega applications. Users primary concerns are space, compression speed and file safety. SPACEMANager answers these needs with a fully automatic program," said Chuck Runquist, vice president of product support and development.
 SPACEMANager's new features include:
 -- SuperCompressor(TM) increases disk space over already compressed DOS 6.0 DoubleSpace disks. Users can realistically add 20 to 40 percent extra disk capacity with this new feature.
 -- Substantial memory reduction of module sizes.
 SPACEMANager simplifies file management through the following modules:
 -- SelectCompress(TM) works on-the-fly to give users additional compression and precise control over the level of compression (none, DOS or UltraCompress) for specific file formats (text, binary, compressed or other).
 -- 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., is not thwarted by compressed data.
 -- 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. In addition, you no longer have to exit Windows to mount a floppy disk.
 -- 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.
 -- SpaceMonitor(TM) provides a graphical report of data compression for specified file extensions or the entire disk, giving a comprehensive space-usage update.
 SPACEMANager is available for $49.95 through Nov. 15, and includes both 5.25- and 3.5-inch disk media. It is available through several distribution and retail channels.
