The most efficient compressor available. KGB Archiver
can't boast of being one of the most used compression formats, but they can brag about being one of the most efficient
. The files that we compress with it will surely be the ones that occupy less space.
The KGB compression format makes a fool of the famous 7z and RAR
by managing a compression ratio that is really high even in formats that are already compressed
like JPEG images and DivX files. According to various standard tests, the compression ratio improves nearly 20% in comparison with its direct competitors
Of course, it is possible to encrypt any file compressed
with KGB Archiver
by means of the AES-256 algorithm, something that will make sure that nobody will be able to open the file if they don't know the password.
This software is one of the most efficient in its field and due to the latter it requires more time to be able to compress any file, nevertheless all the computers available nowadays are compatible with it.
On the other hand, when it comes to decompressing files KGB Archiver
recognizes its own format and ZIP, which it should improve if it wants to manage to replace other compression applications.
