📌 .SITX format branch is oriented for opening, storage, maintenance and sustainment of compressed archives packaged into the Stuffit X container definition, the default encoding technology applied by StuffIt 7.0 and subsequent applet editions. In practice, the .SITX mechanics are commonly known as an exclusive ATOM compression scheme designed by Smith Micro enterprise. More than that, the .SITX algorithm guarantees up to 20% more compression ratio than ordinary, typical StuffIt (.SIT) archive bundles. Besides, the .SITX extension is compatible with error correction, responsible for fixing data transmission and transferral errors, preservation of Windows and Unix (i.e., OS X) file permissions, and long filenames structures. It is also compliant with password protection referencing the 512-bit RC4 encryption or other packaging algorithms, including Blowfish, DES, and AES.
📌 The .SITX file instances can be seamlessly reviewed, opened and modified by StuffIt Deluxe and StuffIt Expander distributives, supported by Windows, macOS and iOS infrastructures. As an extra tweak, the format is clearly and transparently recognizable and opened up by The Unarchiver and Incredible Bee Archiver suites, able to extract the .SITX package contents in the most flexible and efficient way. In common, the .SITX entities are comprehended in scope of Windows and macOS nodes and stations, which fully support the aforementioned file structure and composition. Finally, iOS-related gadgets are also capable of reviewing hierarchical format layout contents without interfering with other data specifications and standards, like alternate decoders and decompressors.
