Run the following commands.

Overkill
-Purge (Regapps)
-Purge (All)
Audit and tell AutoCAD to fix any errors it finds.
Save

Now go back and repeat the above a second time then save.

If the file size is not significantly reduced then try using the WBlock command.

BTW...check your drawing for the presence of Microstation linetypes which can contribute to file size bloat.

And just how much does this app cost?

Can the reduction in file size be independently verified?

Who wrote the app and why would it be any better than the majority of the custom lisp routines (ex. - SuperPurge) out there?  Just because you claim a 30% to 50% reduction in file size doesn't make it so.  Where is the independently verified proof?
