Document Press is a software application that can be used in order to compress compound files and other Microsoft Office files with just a few clicks.
Conveniences of a portable app
You are not required to go through an installation process, as this is a portable utility. Consequently, the Windows registry and Start menu/screen are not going to suffer any changes, and no leftovers will remain on the drive after its removal.
You should also know that by placing the program files to a thumb drive, you make it possible to run Document Press on any computer you come in contact with, on the fly.
Select partitions and input extensions which to process
A command line of this application is also available, and it is possible to reduce the size of Word, Excel, Access and PowerPoint documents, as well as other compound files. You can input the file extensions you want to compress, or you can just process all of them.
The minimal interface enables you to view all connected drives in the main window as a list, be they removable or not. You can choose to process all the non-removable devices, or you manually select the ones that interest you.
View stats and app performance
The compression process does not put a strain on the computer’s performance, as the CPU and memory usage is low at all times. Moreover, when it is done, you can view in another window the total number of files on the disk and the compressed ones, total bytes before and after the size reduction and the compression ratio.
In conclusion, Document Press is a pretty useful piece of software when it comes to reducing the size of many files in one single session. The interface is accessible to all user categories, all jobs are performed in a timely manner and our tests did not register any crashes or bugs.
