I have a couple of really old saved applications on my mac (which is running mac os x lion and is HFS+ formatted) and i am trying to transfer those applications to a mac running macos 7 which is their native environment. I am having some weird issues though... for example, zip files created on the macos x finder give an error when expanded using the old version of stuffit expander for macos 7. Zip files created with Stuffit 2011 expand successfully on the old mac, but the output, rather than being an application with a resource fork is two text documents. Perhaps I should encode the macos classic application using macbin or hex and then compress it and transfer it - but I don't know of any software available on macos lion that provides macbinary encoding.

All this has made me feel that old, macos classic files, are better left stored in .sit format when they are to be saved on a new, HFS+ formatted hard drive - or there is a high risk of trouble later on. Would appreciate any comments/suggestions! Thanks.

You might succeed using DMG, created using Disk Utility.

Try out my "TT's Zip Package" for zipping and unpacking.
Oh: But RB can't build for classic any more. Bummer.

Also, there is the good old ZipIt which still works on Classic and OSX.
