FileOptimizer v12.60 Updated

  • Released on 21 Mar 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.

System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10 / Wine

How to extract: Download the self-extracting 7z package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch FileOptimizer32.exe or FileOptimizer64.exe (for 64-bit OS).

Looks like version 11.40 phones home on every startup now, regardless of settings, probably trying to fetch some ads, well I'm not giving it a firewall rule so I'll be sticking with version 11.31 for the time being.

@Special do you mean that even if ads are not shown they are loaded?

Balabolka is a feature-rich program to read text aloud from a variety of file types including DOC, RTF, PDF, ODT, FB2 and HTML.

The program supports customized font and background color, skins, control reading from the system tray or by the global hotkeys.

Balabolka can also save the synchronized text to external LRC files or in MP3 tags inside the audio files. When the audio file is played with players on a computer or on modern digital audio players, the text will be displayed synchronously (in the same way as lyrics for songs).

Also includes batch conversion tools from of a wide variety of document formats to audio or plain text and a file compare tool, file splitter and screen magnification window.

System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10

You might like to re-check EagleGet's portable status. I had an email conversation with the devs a few versions ago about writing to the registry etc., and as far as I can tell they have acted upon it. On my system, a registry search for "eagle" produces no hits, regardless of the status of auto-update check in EagleGet|Configurations. Older versions also put the file EagleGet.sys in the System32 folder, but that behaviour also seems to have been corrected.
Hope this helps.

jessharpur on 2015-08-20 01:54

@Midas - sorry if I mistakenly tagged you. Perhaps I should have tagged @Checker ?

Midas on 2015-08-26 13:39

@jessharpur: thanks. No problem as comments are public -- but such details are usually debated at the forum, where they get more attention (follow double-balloon icon, second to last from the entry's header).
