# KGB Archives-A powerfull compression tool

Archives can be made in either KGB or ZIP format, and compression level can be set from minimal to maximum (with a lot of options in between). Plus, you can secure them by assigning a password, no matter which compression level you choose.

For example, we compressed a file of 1.2MB at maximum level. The process took 30 seconds, and the result weighed 366,5KB. We imagine a large file takes a lot more than that. So, yes, KBG Archiver is powerful, but it also takes long time for the extreme or maximum compression level.

When the application is open but has no active tasks, system memory is considerably used, but when a file is being compressed, the numbers are skyrocketing!
