NXPowerLite for File Servers 6

Compress PDF, Microsoft Office, JPEG and TIFF files on your server

Reclaim storage, extend server life

NXPowerLite reclaims storage space by replacing large PDF, Microsoft Office, JPEG and TIFF files with smaller optimized versions. It automatically monitors your server, reclaiming wasted capacity, shrinking backups and slowing down storage growth.

Adding NXPowerLite to your servers' storage optimization toolset is an easy and effective way to extend server life and get more value from your hardware investment.

Save storage space with NXPowerLite

How it works

Large PDF and Microsoft Office files often contain a lots of high-resolution images, and background data not required for normal use of the file. By removing this data and unneeded excessive bytes from internal graphics and standalone JPEGs, NXPowerLite radically reduces files to their smallest size - without compromising quality.

Key Features

Powerful Rules

Select which folders and file types to optimize, choose your settings and schedule when the rules take effect. Older files can be optimized using more aggressive settings for even greater savings. Easily exclude folders that should not be optimized.

NXPowerLite for File Servers - Schedule Dialog

Flexible Scheduling

NXPowerLite can be scheduled to start at any specific time and date and allows for many different repeat types depending on what slot is selected. NXPowerLite will continuously loop over the selected folders only pausing when there is no content to optimize.

NXPowerLite is also compatible with Windows task scheduler meaning you can 'Continue' or 'Pause' the service from other events.

Completely transparent - a PDF remains a PDF

Completely transparent

Files optimized with NXPowerLite stay in the same format - a PDF remains a PDF. It will look and feel identical to the original, just much smaller. So running NXPowerLite can be completely transparent to end users. See example below:

How much could you save?

See quickly if NXPowerLite can deliver great results for you, by running our free Quick Scan tool on your storage. It generates a detailed report in minutes by scanning the content on your server and comparing it with average reductions from other customers to estimate how much storage might be reclaimed using NXPowerLite.

The scan is fast, free and completely read-only, so it will not change your files.


For reference, you can see this customer scanned 7.6 TB of data in just 1 hour, 48 minutes.

Try the software

We can arrange for you to evaluate the software - simply provide us with a few details and we will send the software straight to you. NXPowerLite for File Servers comes locked to evaluation mode until a key is entered.

In evaluation mode it will optimise a copy of each file but it won't save over the original. This allows it to build a fully accurate report, although it is much slower (circa 100 GB per day).
