How to open BZ2 files



CREATE, OPEN, EXTRACT BZ2 FILES

extract bz2 file


Create, open, extract BZ2 files


PeaZip offers full read / write support for BZ2 compressed files, through the Open Source components from 7-Zip and p7zip projects (released under LGPL license, as PeaZip) to offer the same GUI frontend to create, browse, and extract .bz2 files under Windows and Linux operating systems.

Read also: what is .bz2 file format

As alternative utilities, 7-Zip (on MS Windows systems) and p7zip (on Linux/BSD), both free and Open Source tools, are recommended for working with bz2 file format.

Compress to BZ2 format

BZ2 accepts a single file as input, otherwise (to add multiple files and directories) use "TAR before" option to consolidate input in a single TAR package before proceeding with compression stage with BZip2 algorithm.

  • From the system's file explorer

    • Select files and folders and use context menu entry PeaZip, Add to archive: you will be prompted to archive creation screen, allowing to set compression settings, output destination, encryption (password protection), and other options.

  • From PeaZip

    • Select files and folders, and use Add button (or application's context menu entry of same name) to be prompted archive creation screen

    • Drag and drop files / folders from the system to a PeaZip instance

From main archive creation interface it is possible to split file - set creation of multiple volumes declaring the maximum output size (spanned archive), in order to keep the output size below mandatory limits (e.g. upload or mail attachment size).
From "Advanced" tab, you can fine-tune compression settings (dictionary size and passes) of the BZip2 compression.

From "Console" and "Schedule" tab, the compression / backup task created in the GUI can be saved as command line script and (on Microsoft Windows operating system) scheduled for execution at fixed time intervals (hour, day of the week or of the month) - same apply for extraction / restore tasks, as the same tabs are featured in archive extraction interface.

How to convert BZ2 files


Archive file conversion procedure using Convert button extracts and then re-pack input archive files into any write-supported format (7z, arc, pea, tar, zip...), optionally keeping or discarding original archives.
This utility makes possible to convert any type supported for reading (e.g. ACE, CAB, RAR, TAR, ZIP...) into a new BZ2 file (which, however, accepts a single file as input), as well as to convert existing BZ2 file into another write-supported format.

Open and extract BZ2 file

Use one of the procedures described below to open (browse and search inside the archive) and/or decompress .7Z archives or .XZ files

  • From the system

    • To view archive's content, open it in PeaZip with double click (if file extension is associated with the application), or using system context menu "Open as archive" entry, that will attempt to read any user provided file type regardless file type associations - this option is also available in PeaZip's context menu

    • Use context menu entry "Extract..." for full extraction screen GUI where to set output path and other options

    • Select one or more archives and use context menu entry Extract here or Extract here (to new folder) for quick extraction with no further confirmation

  • Within PeaZip

    • Extract button shows full featured archive extraction screen providing access to all options (password, set output path, open output path after extraction, keep or delete original archives, etc) and can send to extraction selected items only

    • Extract all to... button activate a simplified procedure only asking for output path

    • Simply drag & drop desired objects from the application to the system

    • Doubleclick on an archived file to open it in preview mode, i.e. to inspect its content before considering the need for real extraction
