I think that this program can be potentially dangerous- it has an explicit Facebook link in the tool-bar, which, if hit by mistake, will open Facebook and thus infect the system- unfortunately not many users know what is "datr" and what it is doing.
I have no respect for developers who have Facebook pages and promote them. Twitter is fine but Facebook was never, is not and will never be fine.

FileOptimizer v9.50 Updated

billon on 10 Jan 2017
  • 109MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 10 Jan 2017
  • 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.

How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch FileOptimizer32.exe (for 32-bit OS) 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

What's new?
  • Fixed a regression since FileOptimizer 9.30, that could avoid some plugin optimizations to not being applied.
  • Fixed a bug when LogLevel was 4, when Optimized Size could be reported as 0 bytes in some situations.
  • Updated pingo to 0.52c.
  • Updated ImageMagick 7.0.4.3 with HDRI support.
  • Some minor optimizations and code cleanup.

Can't start the app on WindowsXP - it misses BORLNDMM.DLL. Just plain adding of that .DLL doesn't resolve the issue...((
Any ideas for the solution?

Midas on 2015-12-27 03:05

@kozak: did you try registering that DLL with Windows?
(e.g., "regsvr32 BORLNDMM.DLL" at the command line)

Most images and files I post to portablefreeware go through this amazing compression tool. When compressing PDF files, I strongly recommend enabling the lossy DPI compression settings (usually around 150 or 200 is fine for most documents).
