PortableApps.com AppCompactor v3.7 Updated

Andrew Lee on 27 Jun 2022
  • 1MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 20 Jun 2022
  • Suggested by Checker

PortableApps.com AppCompactor allows you to compress whole directories including applications, file libraries and zip files. The program is a powerful compression tool that unites 7-Zip and UPX inside a user-friendly wizard. For applications, this saves disk space and increases performance when running from a slow media (like flash drives). For archives, this will recompress DLL, EXE, ZIP, JAR, IRC, PYD and BIN files to their maximum compression settings, as well as an option to decompress an app's binary files that were previously compressed with UPX.

All files are tested using UPX's test feature after compressing. Files smaller than 4K are automatically skipped as compressing will not save space on the drive. The standard Microsoft Visual C runtimes are skipped to prevent antivirus false-positives. Advanced configuration can be done with apps in PortableApps.com Format.

Note: As UPX will alter the EXEs and DLLs (reversible using the Decompress option in the AppCompactor) and some apps may have issues with Zip or Jar files compressed further, users should backup software and test it after processing.

tommyD: Disadvantages are that it breaks some programs, and it may be slightly more CPU-intensive to decompress libraries and executables on the fly.

FileOptimizer v15.80 Updated

Andrew Lee on 9 Jun 2022
  • 194MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 9 Jun 2022
  • 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 list of the 400+ 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. Many images here on TPFC including our logo have been compressed using FileOptimizer.

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).

At startup, the program will optionally show ads to support program development. These can be disabled at any time.

Optionally, to save space:
  • 32-bit systems: delete FileOptimizer64.exe and the \Plugins64 folder
  • 64-bit systems: delete FileOptimizer32.exe and the \Plugins32 folder
  • Delete unnecessary language files

That's not portable. I can only get a setup file installing in C: drive.

kilouiski on 2019-09-20 12:09

I just tried to reduce the size of a video and it has left me exactly the same and with either option: fast and the best.
Any explanation?.
Best regards.

webfork on 2019-10-06 22:40

@kilouiski: FileOptimizer exists because so few programs take the time and energy to fully compress your files with available tools. It sounds like the program used to generate your video was an exception.

Looks like with 8.98 they've removed even more features from the previous 9.87 free version (detect well-known whitelisted libraries/blacklisted resources), funny they don't mention that in the changelog.

v. 9.15 elicits numerous warnings.

IrfanView's developer Irfan Skiljan kindly suggested a workaround for the broken webP.dll Plugin under Win XP :

https://www.irfanview.info/files/iview453_plugins.zip

IrfanView 4.54
+ webP.dll 4.51 Plugin (Link date 20/02/2018; Size 204,288 bytes)
+ Win XP
= eternal bliss...;-)

Cornflower on 2020-10-22 10:31

Many plugins were also updated in this version, so IrfanView recommends updating them if you update IrfanView itself.

"Several PlugIns are changed/updated, please install the newest versions:"

Great Viewer.
Open and converts between most graphic formats, has some (simple, but useful) editing features, and now, even outputs (thru plugin) to PDF. Do note that joining several Bitmaps (each in a one-page PDFs) can easily be done with PDFTK Builder (also in this site). This is not minor. If one wants portability one can not rely on having PDF printer (non-portable) installed everywhere!
