Free Balesio FILEminimizer Office v5.0 (the latest version)!

Update: This promo seems to be over now =(.

Balesio FILEminimizer Office is a software that aims to help compress and reduce file sizes of Microsoft Office files:

  • .PPT/.PPTX
  • .DOC/.DOCX
  • .XLS/.XLSX

The great thing about FILEminimizer Office is you do not have to have Microsoft Office installed to use it. FILEminimizer is a completely standalone software; so if you create a .PPT/.DOC/.XLS format file with another software suite, such as Ashampoo Office or OpenOffice, you can still use FILEminimizer Office with those files.

Here are the full features of FILEminimizer:

  • Office compression for PowerPoint, Word and Excel by up to 98% – a 50MB document is compressed to 1MB in size
  • Compresses PowerPoint 2007, Word 2007, Excel 2007 files – full optimization of PPTX, DOCX, XLSX files
  • Compresses “old” PowerPoint 97 to 2003, Word 97 to 2003, Excel 97 to 2003 files – full optimization of PPT, DOC, XLS files
  • Compresses pictures and embedded objects and reduces the size of Office files
  • Keeps the original file format – simply edit, view and change it without the need to unzip
  • Compresses StarOffice and OpenOffice files provided they are saved in a Microsoft format
  • Compact edition runs directly from CD or USB flash drive – no installation required
  • Integrated search function finds all optimizable files on the PC
  • “Drag & Drop” files directly into FILEminimizer to optimize several files at once (batch processing)
  • Add-ins for Microsoft Outlook, PowerPoint, Word, Excel and Windows Explorer

  • Douglas Huddle, Jr.

    I only find dowloads for trialware on the site now. I don’t load trialware because my experience has been that it never removes all of its files and tracks.

    The program does sound useful though.

    I am getting trouble getting the registration download form FILEminimizer,
    need your help

    @Shankar: It does not compress the images, Word does. It just tells word what to do.

  • Thanks for the tip! This minimizer will really come in handy for me. Balesio also has the more useful software which is the image minimizer. I wonder if and when they’ll also give it for gratis…

  • @@Shankar: Image files refer to JPG, BMP, PNG, etc. picture files and not CD Image files, so it cannot compress ISO files.

  • Shankar

    Since it compresses Image files, can it used to compress & decompress ISO files too?

  • I’m surprised that nobody pointed out this problem yet.

    “You should be promoted to either use the trial…”

    Shouldn’t that be…

    “You should be prompted to either use the trial…”?

    @ Mr.J: Thanks muchly for the clarification!
    @ Bill Gates II: Thanks a lot for the tip! I think I need to become much better friends with Office!

  • Bill Gates II

    I think you miss understude Mr. J. What he ment is that the program does things that we can do our selves to make office files smaller, and that the out put is still a valid file. One thing it may do is image compression. When you insert a picture into a Word document, for instance, the no mater what size you have the picture as the picture will take up the same amount of space the original on your hard drive would. So if you add a 500 MB picture, no matter how small you make it in Word it will add 500 MBs to your document. But there is a setting in Word that compresses the images to just what is being used. I suspect that all this program does is do stuff like that for you.

  • Mr.J

    @Ozzie: Sorry for the confusion, but when I said “the appropriate software that is capable of accessing said file”, I was mentioning the program that is used to open your document in a normal condition. In your case, it would be a PowerPoint viewer, this viewer does not need anything extra to be able to access the file :). If an Office Suite is used, there is no need for any add-on stuffs, you’re ready to go.
    I have just tried it with an outdated presentation I created since Office 2003, it said 80% of hard drive usage was saved, and the file after optimization worked flawlessly so far.

  • Ozzie

    @ Mr.J: Thanks for the reply. So in other words you’re saying that the receiver will also have to have the program installed? Hmmm, might not be what I need then.

  • Mr.J

    @Ozzie: I think this program is only doing the stuffs that we can manually do by ourselves (actually tedious stuffs). So there should be no problem for the designated person to open the files after optimization provided that said person has the appropriate software that is capable of accessing said file :D.

  • Ozzie

    Greetings all! Thanks for this Ashraf. It looks like a useful program. But I have a question. I often have to send large-sized PPT files via email, which can be problematic. I can see from the video that the process of minimising files is very straightforward. However, can I then send those files to someone and have them open and view them without any problems? I’d be grateful for your advice.

  • Ashraf

    @Gerry Locke: I will take that as a “I really like this software”. :)

  • Gerry Locke

    Hey Ashraf, you really are THE man!
