Guest If someone can invent a way to compress and decompress using KGB in real time via hardware... it would be possible to move lots and lots of terabytes without any effort.

Hardware companies should improve this kind of things. Why increase our broadband connections or why use bigger and bigger hard drivers instead of using real time compression?

Guest It is ridiculous as KGB Archiver takes about 7-8 hours to decompress only 600mb.

SoumYa RanJan New technology should renew this tool so that it can have maximum compression with minimal resource requirements.
