Norton removed this as a security risk

Hi on 2010-10-01 21:45

@John It says it right there where you write your comment, above the textbox: "If your *** scanner has detected a virus in the application, please email the author directly or post to the forum. ....."

(can't even mention the word v1rus without getting a notice from Portablefreeware)

You should report the false positive to Norton.

I did something far better.
I uninstalled the flawed ver. 2.10.0.572 portable and installed desktop ver. 2.9.0.565 of Balabolka. My Avast AV doesn't complain anymore.

Sorry, but i can't find version 6.03 on the website. It's still 4.60

Midas on 2014-07-15 09:34

FYI, Tunnelier has been renamed Bitvise SSH Client and the current third party PAF repack is v4.60 Rev 2.0 (see http://tp.vbap.com.au/download). The current upstream Bitvise SSH Client is v6.03 (changelog at http://www.bitvise.com/ssh-client-version-history). Both still freeware...

For a freeware portable server alternative, check out Stunnel (http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=21551). For a freeware non-portable server, see SilverSHielD (http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=21461).

Yes! I am glad I did a small contribution to the development of Winyl by testing it with some Cue sheets. The developer is a very helpful guy and he fixed all the problems some Cue sheets caused.

  • Released on 15 Oct 2018
  • Suggested by ashghost

RIOT (Radical Image Optimization Tool) presents a before-and-after image compression view that allows you to reduce file size of an image into JPG, PNG, or GIF format. Includes optional metadata removal, batch operations, compression to a target file size, transparency options, and other common editing functions (flip, rotate, zoom, pan). Notable versus similar software in the ability to gradually reduce the available colors one-by-one (7, 8, 9, 10...), not just milestones of 16, 32, 64, etc.

The program is also available as a plugin for XnView, GIMP, or Irfanview (see website).

Functional in Linux using Wine. Many of the official entries here on PortableFreeware have used RIOT for compression. Note that the installer version of this program is considered adware.

FileOptimizer v13.30 Updated

billon on 15 Oct 2018
  • 194MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 15 Oct 2018
  • Suggested by I am Baas

FileOptimizer is a broad format file compression tool used to reduce file size without changing the quality, known as "lossless." This is done via wide variety of optimization and recompression tools and techniques. Original files are sent to the recycle bin for restoration in the event the uncompressed version is preferred. A long list of supported formats include audio/video (MP3, OGG, M4A), image (GIF, JPEG, PNG), office formats (DOCX, XLSX, ODT, PDF) and system files (DLL, EXE).

Supports drag-and-drop of files into the window or onto the program icon. Note that by default the program removes metadata for many file types. This information reduces overall file size and protects privacy but is important to some users (e.g. photographers) and file search tools.

A 64-bit version is available within the folder, the author reports the program is functional in WINE, and can be used on the command line.
