<p>Argentum Backup 2.1 for Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003.
Revolutionary 64-bit Backups For The Future! New!
February, 2004</p>
<p>February, 2004 Argentum announced version 2.1 of Argentum Backup, the
fastest, easiest and smallest ergonomic backup software product
available for Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003. Argentum announces an
important, principal innovation - full and native support for Zip64,
new 64-bit extensions to Zip format, which is used as a standard,
portable way to store personal and corporate backups, reliably and
securely. Argentum Backup works in conjunction with WinZip 9, a
world-famous Zip utility, to back up and restore valuable data on any
Windows desktop or laptop, either at home or in the office.</p>
<p>In addition to supporting the original Zip file format, Argentum
Backup 2.1 now supports the 64-bit extensions (Zip64) to the Zip file
format, introduced with the release of original WinZip 9. The extended
format lets everyone back up their data in huge Zip backup files of
virtually unlimited size. The original Zip file format limited the
number of member files in a Zip file to 65,535, and the maximum size
of both the Zip file itself and any member item to 4 gigabytes. For
all practical purposes, the 64-bit extended format eliminates all
these restrictions. Argentum Backup 2.1 remains fully compatible with
the original file format and uses the original Zip format whenever
<p>"One of the best things I like about Argentum Backup is that it simply
creates a Zip file. It doesn't use a file format that may not be
compatible with other machines or that requires software from the
Iomega, etc." - said Fernand Ouellette, a long-time user of Argentum
Backup from Essex Junction, Vermont, USA. "For example, if my home
computer crashed and I was using Microsoft Backup for Windows 98, I
couldn't open the files at work while my home computer was being
repaired, since my PC at work uses Windows XP, which isn't compatible
with Microsoft Backup for Windows 98. In short, I like the fact that
it uses a format I can quickly open on any machine without trying to
find and load software. Great, simple, intuitive product."</p>
<p>Other than that, Argentum Backup remains what it has always been, a
quick and reliable backup solution for everyone. It was designed
around and built for end users. A key design goal for the product was
to ensure that users spend their time accomplishing their objectives,
rather than worrying about or having to manage their software. Whether
you are a small business user, a user in a larger organization, an
administrator, or a user working from home, Argentum Backup is the
essential tool to protect your productivity, to protect your files and
