Compress 1 GB Of File Into 100 MBConvert 1GB File Into 100MB


Everyone will commonly have a doubt that, is it possible to compress files of GB into MB? Most of us the answer would be “NO.” Even I don’t have much knowledge on it.

I Googled it and found really shocking results. Many blogs claim that “Convert 1GB File Into 7MB,” “Compress 1GB File into 10MB” and compress the 1GB file into 100MB. KGB Archiver is the recommended software by all of them. I have decided to review this software after reading these articles. Whatever I got from KGB Archiver compression software I’ll share the result.

KGB Software

With the KGB Archiver, many readers would be familiar. On concord, who don’t know about it. It is a compression tool which comes with a high-compression rate. It provides better compression rate than 7Zip, UHARC, WinRaR etc. This allows you to encrypt yours with KGB Archiver which used AES (Advanced Encryption System) with 256 bit Key to encrypt the data. This is also available for Linux and Windows. It takes a lot of time during compression due to very high compression rate offered by KGB Archiver Software. Your file saves with ‘.kgb’ extension and it can’t be open with any other Archiver software.

How much compression rate does KGB Archiver provide?

A general question that you get now, Is KGB Archiver really compressed 1GB files into 7MB, 10MB or 100MB? I have tried to compress various formats of files with “Maximum” compression level. I also tried to analyze the data and I got a compression rate is 1% or near to 1% with different file formats.

It is very much clear that it’s almost impossible to convert the 1GB file into 1MB to 100MB with KGB Archiver. As you can see above the result, maximum compression is around 1%.

These are the results found in my system and Maybe KGB Archiver performs better with Higher CPU power. On concord, still, convert the 1GB file into 100MB or 7MB. This is possible.
