File naming options
When optimizing files NXPowerLite adds some text to either the backup or optimized copy file name to avoid confusion. By default backup file names have the text "(NXPowerLite Backup)" added and optimized copies have "(NXPowerLite Copy)". You can customize this text by editing the relevant textbox. It is also possible to select whether the text is added 'After' or 'Before' the existing file name, by using the drop-down.
For backups (Default)
Original File = Document.pdf
Backup file = Document (NXPowerLite Backup).pdf
For optimized copies (Default)
Original file = Image.jpeg
Optimized file = Image (NXPowerLite Copy).jpeg
Keep original file names when saving files to a new folder
Files will keep their original file name and not have any text Before or After their name if NXPowerLite Save Profile is configured to either of the following options:
- Create optimized copy Choose folder...
Replace original and create backup Choose folder...
File name clashes
If during processing NXPowerLite detects that there will be a file name clash when it tries to save the file in the configured output folder (see Save Profile), it will display a dialog that allows the user to select how they wish this clash to be resolved. It will give the user 3 options:
Replace the file in the destination - Choosing this option will make NXPowerLite overwrite the file in the destination folder with the same name as the file NXPowerLite is processing.
Skip these files - NXPowerLite will cancel processing the file(s).
Keep both, add a number to copied file names - Example below:
Original file = Presentation.ppt
Optimized copy exists = Presentation (NXPowerLite Copy).ppt
New optimized copy of file = Presentation (NXPowerLite Copy) (2).ppt
Save optimized file with current date and time
By default files that NXPowerLite has processed will have the same date and time attributes as the original files. By enabling this setting NXPowerLite can override the attributes of the file to reflect the current time and date. This may be useful if there is a requirement to indicate that the file has been changed.
By default, NXPowerLite will display a warning when it is configured to replace original files. If this setting is enabled the warning will not appear. To re-enable the warning ensure that the checkbox is unchecked.
Restore replaced files
It is possible to restore replaced Original files. These files will be sent to the Recycle Bin / Bin and can be restored using the operating system's restore facility.
Explorer / Finder
By default, NXPowerLite will use the Balanced Optimize Profile when you choose to compress your files using the right-click menu. You can instead use any custom profile of your choice by configuring the Always use these settings with Explorer/Finder in the preferences. Once the setting is enabled you can set Explorer or Finder to always use, either one of the default profiles or a previously created custom Optimize Profile.
Note: When this setting is enabled NXPowerLite will always create copies or backups in the same folder as the original, there is no option to change this behavior.
