We saved about 200 GB of space straightaway, a 25 percent reduction. The software ran in the background, so there was no downtime at all, which was great.

Product Features

Set Rules

Easily select which folders and files to compress. Combine attributes like date last modified, location and extension to exclude specific file types, new files or even entire departments.


Use the built in scheduler or control the service from other events using Windows task scheduler. This provides flexibility to work around other regular tasks like backups.

Track & Audit

Compressed files are tagged to ensure that NXPowerLite avoids degrading files by repeatedly compressing. We also provide a tag viewer to audit which files have been touched by NXPowerLite.

Monitor Results

NXPowerLite generates comprehensive reports, detailing how storage was being used and the savings achieved by compressing files.

Works with any storage

Compress files on any storage device in the same Windows domain as the machine on which NXPowerLite is installed, including EMC, NetApp and Novell Netware servers.

Transparent Compression

Compressed files remain in the same format and with the same file extension as the originals.

How it can be used

Batch compress an existing collection of files on one or more servers in a single pass. Great for freeing up space on your server, or compressing files before a migration.
"Set and Forget"
Set it once to monitor specific folders and it will automatically run periodically (e.g. nightly, weekly etc.) to compress new files that have arrived since the last time NXPowerLite was run. Great for slowing down storage growth.
Watch folders* and compress files in real time as they are saved. Great as a workflow solution if you have files being created by scanners, applications or users that need to be compressed straight away.
* only available for Plus & Enterprise
Run it on targeted folders in single pass mode to keep offending areas in check on an ad-hoc basis.

A unique file optimization solution that eliminates unessential data, converts graphics to the most efficient format and resolution, dramatically reduces the size of content-rich files, and increases efficiency and bottom line cost savings, all while keeping the file basically intact.
