I have tested it and it is working. [/UPDATE-4] [UPDATE-3] Also read Mario’s comment.[/UPDATE-3] [UPDATE-2] Billy Vrahnos has update that it works on Windows 8.[/UPDATE-2]. [UPDATE-1] Billy Vrahnos has asked about license activation and re-installation of Balesio FileMinimizer Suite 7. I have updated article about it. Read it at the end of article. [/UPDATE-1] It is quite normal to have 500 GB or more internal storage on personal computer. Though it is huge space but there will be time when you will run out of it and will be in need of extra storage which could be external. Then, why, waiting for that time and why not using different tools to save your space now, doing so will save you some hard earned bucks. One famous method is compressing the files into archives using WinZip, WinRAR, 7-ZIP to save storage space. The problem is you always have to unarchive to access the file. Unarchived file will be of same size as of before archiving. This means you only save the space when the file is archived. Well, Balesio FileMinimizer Suite is something else which you need.
Balesio FileMinimizer Suite (current version 7.0) is lot different from other compression tools. It compresses the files but there is no archive or unarchive like you need in all other zipping software where archiving files and folders is main function. Balesio FileMinimizer Suite 7 can compress files up to 90%. You can compress files PowerPoint (PPT, PPTX, PPS, PPSX), Word (DOC, DOCX), Excel (XLS, XLSX), Zipped PowerPoint, Word and Excel files, “Born-digital” PDF files, PDF scans, Print-ready PDF files, JPEG, PNG, BMP, TIFF, GIF, EMF and then Microsoft Outlook integration, Lotus Notes integration.
Balesio FileMinimizer Suite has very simple interface. Select the file, select compression, select the destination and compress file. It does not take longer and the compression is done. Read more HERE.
