Most powerful file compression software: KGB Archiver

Do you know that KGB Archiver is one of the world’s most powerful file compression software?


One of the reasons why users say that KGB Archiver is one of the world’s most powerful file compression software is its ability to turn a 1GB file to a mere 10MB file after compression (just an example). This is made possible with the use of the AES-256 encryption technology that is one of the most powerful encryptions we have in the world today.


More about KGB Archiver


KGB Archiver is indeed powerful but the process of compressing and decompressing files consumes time and you got to have a little bit of patience if you want to use KGB Archiver. Take note that KGB Archiver has a high hardware requirement and the people behind it recommend using KGB Archiver on a system that has a minimum of 1.5GHz processor and 256MB of RAM. Watch the following video to know more about KGB Archiver.

A good compression software can not only compress a very big size file into a tiny microorganism but also supports all compression type. Most importantly, does KGB supports .rar?

Hi there HyperX,

Of course it does. Here's the complete support list:

ZIP, CAB, SQX2.0, 7zip, RAR, SITX, KGB2, PAQ6, KGB1, KGB2, PAQ7

FYI that is actually impossible -- encryption has nothing to do with file compression. What really happens is that encryption waits until the compression is done, since encrypted data is near-random looking, and it's nearly impossible to compress that because of the high entropy (Shannon information theory). It's probably better to leave the writeup as saying it has strong file compression as well as supporting industry-standard file encryption technologies (instead of stating that one as the reason for the other, since they are unrelated).

I agree with dwmsyron.
You can compress a GB down to a few MB, but only if the input data is very compressible by nature, and you can accomplish it with even with WinRar (RAR) or WinZip (ZIPX) or 7-Zip (7Z) or PeaZip (7Z, PAQ8).
Real life compression ratio is much more small for any compressor, including KGB Archiver, that is based on an old PAQ algorithm.
