TAR file format (TGZ, TBZ,...)



WHAT IS TAR FILE FORMAT

TAR FILES, READ MORE

TAR extension



TAR is a popular archiving format, mainstream for data backup and distribution purpose on Unix and Unix-like systems, as BSD, Linux and derivates. In use since early Unix versions, predating integrated archiving and compression formats like zip and rar, it was later standardized by POSIX-1.1988 and POSIX.1-2001. Tar packages are sometimes referred as "tarballs".

TAR file format doesn't feature native data compression, so TAR archives are often compressed with an external utility like, but not only, GZip, BZip2, XZ (using 7-Zip/p7zip LZMA/LZMA2 compression algorithms), and similar tools to reduce archive's size, i.e. for more compact backup, or smaller software distribution package.
Similarly, TAR also does not natively support cryptography, but it is possible to compress the TAR package with a compression format providing encryption features such as zip, 7z, arc, pea.
Adding items to a tarball before compression stage is quivalent to using solid compression, which can be beneficial for optimizing output size.

PeaZip fully support creation and extraction of TAR files on Windows and Linux systems.

tar archives

When it is recommended to use TAR format: in brief, it is a good choice for distributing data on Linux and other Unix-like systems, combining it with .gz / .bz compression to save bandwidth if relevant for the intended use.
