    There has to be a way to force DropStuff 10 to make normal .sit files (or .hqx for that matter) that will open with older versions of Stuffit, than just the .sitx that only open in OS X.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Nevermind I found it. I have to do it through the Stuffit Deluxe application, rather than Drop Stuff like I'm used to in OS 7... :confused:

    You have two (2) options:

    Stuffit Deluxe--You are aware of this option.

    Magic Menu--If you have Stuffit Deluxe--and you do--then this little utility should be running. If not, launch it and it will add a menu to your icon bar. If you want to archive a file or folder, click on the object to be archived.
    Choose Magic Menu (icon) > Archive > Stuff (.sit).

    Alternatively, you may choose the .sit format as your default:
    Choose Magic Menu (icon) >Preferences.
    Click the Stuffit icon.
    Select Stuffit from the popup menu.
    Click OK.

    Now if you want to archive a file or folder:
    Click the object to be archived.
    Choose the Magic Menu (menu) > Stuff menu item. This creates an archive in the Stuffit (.sit) format.

    Thank you.

    I actually disabled the Magic Menu. I'll keep that in mind, though.

    Reenable it.
    It is a godsend.
