Optimize Command (choco optimize)
Chocolatey Licensed editions only.
Similar to Package Reducer, but reduces for existing packages. With Package Optimizer/Reducer:
- nupkg file is reduced to 5KB or less, no matter the size.
- zips / installers are automatically removed from the package directory if they are found.
- zips / installers are removed from TEMP cache if found.
The following file extensions are removed automatically:
- 7z / zip / rar / gz / tar / sfx
- msi / msu / msp
- exe files if they are detected to be an installer
choco optimize [<options/switches>]
choco optimize choco optimize --reduce-nupkg-only

Options and Switches
Options and switches apply to all items passed, so if you are running a command like install that allows installing multiple packages, and you use
--version=1.0.0, it is going to look for and try to install version 1.0.0 of every package passed. So please split out multiple package calls when wanting to pass specific options.
Includes default options/switches (included below for completeness).
downloading multiple packages, and you use `--version=1.0.0`, it is going to look for and try to download version 1.0.0 of every package -?, --help, -h Prints out the help menu. -d, --debug Debug - Show debug messaging. -v, --verbose Verbose - Show verbose messaging.
