Create Highly Compressed Archives

  Are you looking for a tool which compress your files to a size as small as a worm-whole. Here is a tool called KGB Archiver.  KGB Archiver is the compression tool with unbelievable high compression rate. It surpasses even such efficient compression tool like 7zip and UHARC in terms of the abilities.


  KGB Archiver is an application created to allow you to compress and decompress files. Unfortunately although its powerful compression rate, it has high hardware requirements ( processor with 1.5GHz clock and 256MB of RAM as an essential minimum).

   When compressing you have two output formats to choose from: KGB and ZIP. The compression level for KGB archives is quite impressive

   There are 10 levels of compression that you can select: minimal, very weak, weak, normal, medium, above medium, good, very good, extreme and maximum. This is a wider variety than what all the other related programs have to offer.


   When working with compression levels up to the Good one, you will pretty much get the same result as you would with any other archiving application. But, when you land in the next category (very good, extreme and maximum) things do change dramatically. You files become more smaller and your system memory usage goes up.

   One thing i don’t like about this program is that it has a wizard look and once you’ve selected one of the three options from the main screen, there’s no turning back. Your only option to go back to a previous step is by closing the program and running it again.

   One of the advantage of KGB Archiver is AES-256 encryption which is used to encrypt the archives. This is one of the strongest encryptions known for human.

   Using KGB for higher compression level slow down your system, it better to write the DVD at 1X speed. But if you use it under very good compression level then this is a good compression tool i have ever used.
