PackUpAndGo wraps an easy-to-use, drag and drop GUI around standard Unix archiving and compression utilities.

PackUpAndGo creates archives in a standard format that can be opened on any platform.

Because PackUpAndGo uses standard, cross-platform tools, it does not handle old Mac OS resource forks. However, most documents created under Mac OS X, particularly those created by Cocoa-based applications, can be safely archived by PackUpAndGo.

The advantage of using PackUpAndGo is its use of non-proprietary standard formats.

Here are some key features of "PackUpAndGo":
Drag & Drop of Files and Folders
Packs and unpacks universally standard archives
Single or multiple files and/or folder combinations
Available through Services or by dropping on the application icon
Optionally convert to ASCII encoding (uuencoded)
Works even if you donít have write permission on fileís directory
Console which logs actions and errors
Fully multithreaded: start new jobs even when old are running
Jobs Panel keeps track of all compressions in a session
Window sizes and locations remembered between sessions
Preferences:
†* Use gnutar and gzip if you have it available
†* Choose time versus space on compression
†* Compress in place or in temporary directory
†* Option to save compressed files when encoded
†* Set the group
†* Automatic ASCII Encoding option for mailing.

Limitations:
30 days trial.
