  • Released on 15 Oct 2018
  • Suggested by Darkbee

HFS (HTTP File Server) is a great tool for sharing files on any device with a web browser. Just setup the program, add files and folders via drag and drop, and connect to the web address. The web view is an easy-to-navigate page that provides search, a variety of view options, and even the capability to download files and folders in a single archive (TAR format).

Other features include user controls, uploading, speed limits, transfer logs, "expert" view, and IP bans. Note that to make the program available over the internet, a dynamic DNS-type service may be necessary.

Functional in Linux under WINE.

FYI, in the stunnel forum topic there's some additional tools for easy configuring HFS (http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=21551).

@rodger123: This "worse" version only leaves files in Internet Explorer's cache. IMHO, the overhead caused by PortableApps.com Launcher is not worth it.

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.

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

Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: GNU AGPL
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).

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

Not stealth anymore, creates 'AppData/Local/Notepad++' folder.

So in the 7.5.1 changelog it says it fixed the above 'AppData/Local/Notepad++' folder bug, but I'm still getting them, can anyone else confirm?
