Drop More Stuff with DropStuff 4.5 -- Aladdin Systems has released DropStuff with Expander Enhancer 4.5, the second half of Aladdin's dynamic duo of desktop compression and expansion utilities (the first half being the freeware StuffIt Expander 4.5). DropStuff offers drag & drop creation of StuffIt archives and enables users to create password-protected, self-extracting, and BinHex archives. DropStuff's StuffIt Engine extends StuffIt Expander's capabilities to include virtually all online encoding formats; version 4.5 of the StuffIt Engine enables StuffIt Expander to mount ShrinkWrap disk images and access files protected by Aladdin's Private File encryption product. DropStuff 4.5 runs under System 7.5 or later and is $30 shareware; if you registered a previous version of DropStuff, you can upgrade for $15. [GD]
Extract Directly from Time Machine
Normally you use Time Machine to restore lost data in a file like this: within the Time Machine interface, you go back to the time the file was not yet messed up, and you restore it to replace the file you have now.
You can also elect to keep both, but the restored file takes the name and place of the current one. So, if you have made changes since the backup took place that you would like to keep, they are lost, or you have to mess around a bit to merge changes, rename files, and trash the unwanted one.
As an alternative, you can browse the Time Machine backup volume directly in the Finder like any normal disk, navigate through the chronological backup hierarchy, and find the file which contains the lost content.
Once you've found it, you can open it and the current version of the file side-by-side, and copy information from Time Machine's version of the file into the current one, without losing any content you put in it since the backup was made.
