This application works well and I have not experience any bugs or malfunctions. The price of Compress Files 5.0 is a little steep when you compare it other available applications such as sArchiver 2.5.6 ($15.00) or BetterZip 1.8.3 ($19.95). Both sArchiver 2.5.6 and BetterZip 1.8.3 offer decompression of many commonly used file formats, segmented/split file compression for large files, and the ability to preview content of archives without extracting it. Compress Files 5.0 does offer contextual menu support for pre Snow Leopard users and service menu support for Snow Leopard users which makes compressing a file very convenient. I noticed that the Compress Files 5.0 dos not offer all the options under service menu that it does under the contextual menu options. For example under contextual menu options you cloud choose compress to a 7z file , compress to a 7z encrypted file, or compress to a 7z file and send it as attachment to a new Mac Mail message. The service menu options is missing the encrypted and the ability to attachment to a new Mac Mail message options for all of the supported formats. The of the absence of the attachment to a new Mac Mail message slow ones work flow dramatically. Compress Files 5.0 does not allow to you choose the level of encryption for DMG images. At this price point I believe this option should have included.

Please note the service menu can by using the contextual menu under advance preference menu. You are able to choose 1 format either non encrypted or encrypted by using this menu. A separate section under this menu labeled service menu would help avoid confusion.

When I make an encrypted disk image. I do not get a password dialog. It makes the .dmg but the pass is blank so no info needed to open the encrypted disk image. All other options are working 100%. Mac OS X 10.4.9 INTEL G5
