What are .KGE files and how to open them?

Can't open .KGE file? Are you wondering what it contains? On our site we will explain to you what this file is, what it is used for and what software opens the .KGE file.

What is a .KGE file extension?

.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Currently, .KGE file type is not actively used and is obsolete.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.

How to fix problems with .KGE files

  1. You need to update the application that you normally use to open .KGE files. Only the latest version of the software supports the current .KGE file format
  2. You need to check the .KGE file for viruses. To do this, you need to scan it with a popular antivirus (Norton, Nod32, Kaspersky, Dr.Web, etc.)
