Is it really possible to compress a 1GB File into 7MB with KGB ARCHIVER?

Do you really want to compress a 1GB file into 7MB ? Well I take the answer is Yes because everyone wants to save the storage space so that more and more data can be stored without purchasing extra Hard Disk. I have read it on many Blogs about KGB Archiver can compress a 1GB file into 7MB file. Honestly I don’t believe it so I decided it to give it a try to in this post I will share the results I got from KGB Archiver Compression Software.

What is KGB Archiver and what it so special about this Software?

After reading the title of the post I believe most of you are wondering what is KGB Archiver and how can it compress a file with a compression rate of almost 1 % ( approx…). Some of the users reading this article may have known and used the software but for the users new to KGB Archiver – ‘ it is a compression tool which comes with unbelievable high-compression rate and provides more features and better compression rate than other tools like WinRAR, 7Zip, UHARC etc ‘. You can also encrypt the files with KGB Archiver which used AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) with 256 bit key to encrypt the data. Another feature which makes it unique from other compression tools is its ability to work both on Windows and Linux operating System with very high-compression ratio. One thing that goes against the software is the amount of time taken for compression which is understandable due to Very High Compression Rate offered by KGB Archiver Software. After the compression is done your file or data gets saved with KGB Archiver extension which cannot be opened with any other Compression Software available in the market.

How much compression rate actually KGB Archiver provides

Now the most important question – Is it really possible to compress 1GB File into 7MB with KGB ARCHIVER? Well to answer the question I have tried compressing various formats of files not of 1GB because it will take lots of time. But as I have mentioned earlier in the post that with KGB Archiver you can get a compression rate of 1%, so with the results I have analyzed whether KGB Archiver can compress different file formats with a compression rate of 1% or near to 1%. For the experiment I have compressed all different formats of files with the same level of compression which is ‘Very High’. Read also How to Compress PDF files

It is very much clear that if somewhere you read that With KGB Archiver Convert 1GB file into 7MB than think twice before trying to compress the file of 1GB. As you can see it that to compress a Video file of 8.8 MB only you need around 6 min and output is just 97.8 % compressed. Maximum Compression that I got is with the PDF files which gets compressed with a rate of 87.2% but still time required to compress the files (which are not anywhere near to 1% as mentioned above in the article) is too much.

These are the results that I found on my system, and may be KGB Archiver works better with Maximum Compression and with Higher CPU Power but still time required to compress the files is very high.
