FileOptimizer v13.70 Updated

billon on 22 Mar 2019
  • 194MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 22 Mar 2019
  • 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.

Can't you disable it saving temporary files in the options?

opsimathic on 2017-08-12 08:51

@Emka - The first item under OPTIONS look like you can set the utility to delete the jpgs when you exit the program. I have never been very sure the program actually does what it says, so I simply use the second item in OPTIONS to check and delete as necessary. Periodically I use the jpg instead the pdf so I actually find this useful. Bottom line is that I wish the author would clean all this up a bit more, but I find the utility so useful (use it every day almost) that I am prepared to work around the idiosyncrasies.

Tremendous search program that has saved me again and again, finding files and content that other programs miss. Each version seems to add to the pile of file formats it can index. As a result, it's on every machine I own and some I don't.

MoisheP on 2018-06-17 01:13

DocFetcher indexes many formats, such as LibreOffice documents, that Microsoft Search (aka Cortana) does not, or does incompletely. It also uses far less CPU time, once the initial indexing is completed, than MS. DocFetcher also runs on Linux. Results can be sorted by likelihood of match, as well as filename, type, date etc. Only downside is that it requires Java.

Unfortunately Scribus Portable (stable & test, @portableapps.com) is not stealth - HKCU\Software\Trolltech keys are left behind.
To make it stealth, you must edit the launcher script ("ScribusPortable.ini" under App{AppInfo\Launcher) - there the registry values are outdated: change every occurence of "HKCU\Software\QTPojects..." to "HKCU\Software\Trolltech...".
Perhaps John T. Haller changes it in the next release.

...sorry, my previous comment only applies to the stable version 1.4.7 - changing "HKCU\Software\QtProject.." to "HKCU\Software\Trolltech.." in "ScribusPortable.ini" does it.
The test version (1.5.4) is stealth out of the box.

I was using sumatra for a long time. Recently I had to open a high graphics magagine PDF. And it was very slow, slower than foxit and pdfxchange. Then I tried all the pdf viewers in this site.

After testing I found that, Universal Viewer is the fastest PDF viewer, especially for high graphics magagine kind of PDFs. I have a lower mid range laptop. Universal viewer throws sumatra, pdfxcange, foxit out of water when it comes to speed of loading one after another high graphics page. And it's the lightest of all the PDF viewers, uses minimal CPU unlike others I have mentioned.

I do not disagree, I still use Excel 2003, and it took some work to get it to work correctly on Windows 10 - 64 bit. If program is all you need and works, great. SE-Explorer zip contains SE-MediaPlayer, does not work. Context menu limited to SE-Explorer list, unlike FreeCommanderXE, etc. which include context items added to Windows menu.

I've done this, but I still get the "Register Now" nag. Pressing clears the nag, but it's awfully irritating. Is there a way of disabling it?

Fergus on 2010-09-29 19:46

OK managed to get a register code; use it once and hey presto away you go. BUT the code is written o a local gsview.ini which also incorporates named drive letters. Move your USB stick to another host machine where it will very likely be named differently and gsview.ini is suddenly broken -- you have to supply the reg code again. Very VERY annoying; not true portable freeware, at all ...

Ascend4nt on 2012-01-24 22:37

Setup is a bit more tricky then running a self-extracting executable, and dumping Ghostscript in the same folder. Here's what I had to do:
1. Download the GSView self-extracting exe and the associated Ghostscript exe
2. Open the GSView self-extracting exe with 7-zip or other archive software and extract everything except the files indicated in 'How to Extract'. (RUNNING the exe will install a non-portable version!!)
3. Create a 'gs9.04' subfolder in the folder that GSviewPortable is in. (it seems the name is usually 'gs' followed by the version #).
4. Open the Ghostscript exe with an archive utility, go to $_OUTDIR, and extract all the files from that folder into the subfolder just created (in this case, gs9.04)
5. Now you can run GSviewPortable

*Note: I can verify what Fergus says - Registration screen pops up on run. Not a huge deal for me

Disappointing, this app does not extract jpg images from pdf files.
But this one does: http://tcpdiag.dl.sourceforge.net/project/pdftojpg/pdftojpg/pdf_to_jpg_1a/PDF_to_JPG_exe.zip
It is a command line application (therefore it does not qualify according to portablefreeware) very easy to use (just pass the name of the pdf file as an argument, and all the images are extracted in a folder created and located in the folder where you launch the app). From what I have tested, the images are extracted with their original resolution.

I much prefer PDFtk Builder v. 2.35 as a GUI for PDFtk. It's about half the size of GUI for PDFtk and I find it more functional (for example for reordering pages in a pdf).

See my post with download details and screenshot for PDFtk Builder v. 2.35 at http://portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=3114&sid=9c95972690f60d86756bee5662f2d9ab#3114 .

very bad. One of the worse software I've used

Very interesting application when you take time to invest in it. Much more than Rainlendar although less fancy interface. Has also the import tools and is fully Unicode. Must be used by a large number of users, as it appears in 7 languages already. New search function quite usefull. Imports are possible from Excel. Extra features, such as the Money application, can be used to replace money or quicken in simple households. The music and film functions are quite handy. I'm positively surprised : it's much better than it seems at first hand.

Apparently not free: "We advise you that the downloaded file gives you the right to try the program for 30 days. If you want to use the program longer than the 30 days, you need to buy the license key with us. The downloaded program is fully functional, and contains all 8 languages"
