– MacBooks shipped after January 21st, 2009
– Mac Minis shipped after March 3rd, 2009
– MacBook Pros shipped after October 14th, 2008
– iMacs which shipped after the first quarter of 2009

Squeeze reduced my total harddisk size by 20gb!

Remember Squeeze from latenitesoft? It now saved my total harddisk size by 20gb! Meaning I have 20gb more space to download stuff! How amazing!

1 month ago when MacHeist gave our Squeeze for free before its nano-bundle. I have grabbed a copy of it, and during that time i have posted how much it actually squeezed my files. It was 175mb.

Now, after 1 month, Squeeze for Mac not just saved me 175mb. It actually saved 21.8gb! And it is still squeezing as I am blogging this post! How amazing is that?

What can I say about this software? I will say this is great. Especially for users who are on Macbook or Macbook Pro, where harddisk space is so limited and important. Squeezing the whole document or download folder will definately help in saving space.

What is best is that although the files in folders are compressed, but they still can be access without any problem. No unzipping, no nothing. When Squeeze is squeezing your files, it did not took up too much CPU power, to be honest, i don’t sense any lag nor slowness, I don’t even know it is actually compressing my files.

So what are you waiting for? Download Squeeze now at latenitesoft!
