What is an .KGE file?

.KGE file extension is created by Tomasz Pawlak. .KGE has been classified as Archive and compressed Files.

.KGE is KGB Archiver encrypted compressed archive

The kge file extension is used for highly compressed archives created with open source program KGB Archiver.

The kge file is a compressed archive encoded with AES-256 encryption in version 1.X of KGB Archiver. Otherwise the default compression format has the KGB file extension instead.

The kgb file is a standard archive created with KGB archiver.

Seems that the official website is no longer available and the program is not further developed. It is however still available on its SoureForge website.

.KGE file format is deprecated and this file format is no longer supported.

Currently, .KGE file type is not actively used and is obsolete. This usually happens with system files in older operating systems, files from long-discontinued software, or with previous versions of some file types (documents, projects, images, etc.) that were replaced in later versions of the original programs.


How to open:

KGB Archiver is able to open *.kge files, provided you know the password used to encrypt the files.

How to convert:

KGB archiver also supports common ZIP compression, so you can extract the contents of *.kge files with the program and compress them to ZIP if needed.
