You've probably landed here because WeCompress was unable to compress your file. There are many reasons why a file cannot be compressed and we've detailed them in the table below:
|File is already compressed
|WeCompress has already optimized this file. Reducing further could adversely affect the quality of the file.
|File is encrypted or password protected
|WeCompress does not process these types of files. Please remove password protection or encryption from file before using WeCompress.
|File is digitally signed
|The file has a digital signature which WeCompress would render invalid and therefore cannot process. Remove the digital signature before processing and re-add afterwards.
|File feature unsupported
|This applies to fast-saved documents created in early version of Microsoft Office. Save the file in a version of Office 2003 or greater and then optimize.
|Unsupported file format
|The file has an extension that does not match the documented format of the file. A common example of this is a .RTF file saved with .DOC file extension.
|File version is too new
|Files created by Office 2016 (version 16) or PDF version higher than v1.7 ext. 8 will not be processed.
|File version is too old
|Files created by versions of Office 97 or PDF with versions less than v1.4 will not be processed.
|Unsupported PDF file
|WeCompress cannot process this PDF file. It is likely that the file is either a PDF portfolio file or is of a subset of PDF that is not yet supported.
