.kgb File Extension

Developer: Tomasz Pawlak
File type: KGB Archive File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .kgb. Files with the file extension .kgb can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .kgb files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .kgb file?

A KGB archive file is stored in the KGB format and is appended with the .kgb extension, and the KGB file format is integrated with compression specifications implemented by the KGB Archiver software for its default compressed output file format. The KGB Archiver program is classified as a file compression and decompression tool that was developed by Tomasz Pawlak. AES-256 encryption functionalities are also available in the KGB Archiver application, which means files and folders or groups of folders selected by a KGB Archiver user for compression can also choose to encrypt the data of the resulting KGB file. These encryption standards are useful for securing or protecting the data stored in a KGB file, especially when the content of a KGB file includes private or confidential data intended to be distributed to a particular group of users. The KGB Archiver software can be installed in computers running on Microsoft Windows-based systems to implement support into the system for creating and decompressing these KGB files.

how to open a .kgb file?

Launch a .kgb file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .kgb file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .kgb files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .kgb file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .kgb file will open the correct application.

KGB Archiver

KGB Archiver

KGB Archiver is a file archiver and data compression utility based on the PAQ6 compression algorithm. PAQ is a lossless data compression that means the exact original data can be constructed from compressed data. This type of compression is normally used when it is important that the decompressed data is the same as the original, for example in executable programs and source codes. The application uses ten levels of compression, from the very weak to maximum that is more than that found in most other compression software. It supports native .kgb and .zip files and is able to create self-extracting files. It uses AES-256 encryption to protect files. KGB Archiver is released free and open source under the terms of the GNU General Public License. The minimum requirements for the program are a 1.5 GHz processor and 256 MB RAM. It requires a platform supported by Microsoft Windows, Linux, and other Unix-like operating systems.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .kgb files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .kgb. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
