Files To Include

Custom File Types Profiles

NXPowerLite is configured with a default profile of 'All File Types' meaning it will try to process all file types that it currently supports. This can be changed either when you are adding a folder, or later by selecting the folder and clicking the 'Edit...' button. See Configuring folders (Adding, removing & setting rules) for more information.

Supported File Types

NXPowerLite can optimize the following types of files with the following extensions:

  • Microsoft PowerPoint 97-2003 binary format (.ppt, .pot, .pps)
  • Microsoft PowerPoint 2007-2019 Open XML format (.pptx, .pptm, .potx, .potm, .ppsx, .ppsm)
  • Microsoft Word 97-2003 binary format (.doc, .dot)
  • Microsoft Word 2007-2019 Open XML format (.docx, .docm, .dotx, .dotm)
  • Microsoft Excel 97-2003 binary format (.xls, .xlt)
  • Microsoft Excel 2007-2019 Open XML format (.xlsx, .xlsm, .xltx, .xltm)
  • PDF Documents (.pdf)
  • JPEG images (.jpeg, .jpg, .jpe, .jfif, .jif, .jfi)
  • PNG images (.png)
  • TIFF files (.tiff, .tif)

To enable or disable individual file types create and apply a new Files to include profile.  Once in the Add/Edit Files to include dialog expand the tree view and check or un-check the corresponding check-boxes.


Read-only files

By default, files with the "read-only" attribute are not processed by NXPowerLite. These files can be included by checking the "Include read-only files" checkbox.

Zip archives

By default, NXPowerLite optimizes any of the selected file types that it finds inside Zip archives. This behavior can be altered by using the check-box control.

Please note: NXPowerLite cannot optimize any file or Zip archive that is encrypted or password protected

Limit files by date

NXPowerLite can skip older or more recently modified files. Users can choose to exclude or include files based on the file's last-modified date by using the Limit files by date feature.

Profile Name

Each profile has to be given a unique name, although you can use the same profile name for another type of profile i.e. Settings profile or Schedule profile. We suggest using a descriptive name to help explain what it does or a specific area to which it should be applied. For example, you may want to call a particular profile 'All file types except PDF' or 'Marketing area'.
