    Written in Microsoft Visual C++ by Tomasz Pawlak, KGB Archiver is designed to achieve a very high compression ratio. As a consequence, the program is relatively Memory- and CPU-intensive. But who cares with 16GB RAM and i5 CPUs - days of quad core are gone.

    Can compress entire DVD to something like 4MB file :) (personally tested). Nothing comes near to rarely known - KGB Archiver. What about compressing a partition overnight and saving it online.

    It's PAQ7 compression, had tried with data earlier. Give it a shot no harm.
