Compressing a file saves space on your hard drive, decreases the amount of bandwidth you need when downloading (because said file is now smaller), and makes it easier to move files between systems.
Software maker Pentaware has been a player in the file-shrinking business thanks to their versatile compression solution, PentaZip. Claude Ostfeld, the CEO and one of the Co-Founders of Pentaware, talked to GPF about the company, its philosophy and their two flagship products: PentaZip and the newly-released PentaSuite. Claude began by explaining why he is still as enamored with the company as he was back in 1999.[audio:http://www.uaf.edu/kuac/gpfault/audio/2-4-04pentaware.mp3]
