Free TAR software create, open, extract TAR files



tar files


Work with TAR file format, archiving and extraction (UNTAR)


PeaZip free archiver offers full read / write support (create, open and extract tar) for uncompressed and compressed TAR archives - TAR.GZ archives (same as TGZ extension), TAR.BZ2 archives (alternative file extensions TBZ, TB2, TBZ2), TAZ, TZ, TAR.Z, TLZ, TAR.LZ, TAR.LZMA, TXZ, TAR.XZ, etc... - learn more about files with multiple extensions - on Linux and Microsoft Windows operating systems.

Create TAR archive

To add files / folders to a new or into an existing .tar file:

Create tar file from the system's file explorer

  • Select files and folders and use context menu entry PeaZip, Add to archive for archive creation screen, allowing to set output destination and other options.

Create tar file from PeaZip free archiving utility

  • 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 PeaZip; if you are browsing an existing archive you will be asked if to add files to the archive or create a new one

Compress TAR files

Tar format does not natively implement compression methods, and needs to rely on extrenal compressor tools.
Simplest tar compression method: when adding folders or multiple files to single file compressors, in example selecting BZip2 or GZip or XZ format, PeaZip automatically switches on "Tar before" switch, applying compression to tar files.
Alternatively, compression can be achieved creating tar file first, then compressing it in a second separate step, selecting any of the write-supported formats - 7z, arc, pea, zip...

Update existing TAR archive


To update a compressed Tar file (TGZ, TBZ, TXZ, TAR.GZ...) it must be decompressed before.

Easiest way to edit an uncompressed TAR is opening it with PeaZip utility and dragging files/folders to it, which will automatically activate update mode - can be changed into add mode in advanced tab.
To remove (delete) data from the archive, select items and press cancel or "Delete from archive" button. Deleted items will not be recoverable from recycle bin.

How to convert TAR files


Convert button extracts and re-pack input TAR archive files into any write-supported format (7z, arc, pea, zip...) - optionally keeping or discarding original archives - or convert any existing read-supported archive (7z, ace, rar, zip, zipx...) to TAR format.

tar for windows

Depending on user's needs, compressed TAR archives (TGZ, TBZ, TXZ, etc) can optionally de-compressed before being converted, so individual archived files gets re-compressed in the new format, otherwise existing .tar archive will be simply re-compressed as a whole (solid compression).

Open TAR files


To view archive's content, open tar file 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.

Extract TAR files (untar)


UNTAR from Windows system context menu

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

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

UNTAR within PeaZip free archiver
  • Extract button shows archive extraction screen providing access to all tar extractor options (set output path, open output path after extraction, keep or delete original archives, etc)

  • Extract all to... button activate a simplified procedure only asking for output path where to "unzip" content

  • As simpler alternative, drag & drop extract from tar the desired objects, from the application to the system

tar extraction

To work on a compressed TAR file (TGZ, TAR.GZ, TBZ, TXZ...) you will need to decompress the tar archive before using aforementioned methods - it is a two-step non atomic operation.
Read more about how to extract entire archive(s) and how to extract selected files from archive.

To extract a spanned (split) TAR file, save all the parts in the same directory, then open as usual the first volume of the archive, which has .TAR.001 extension - subsequent volumes have progressively numbered file extensions (002, 003 etc).

Tarbomb term designates a malicious .tar package built to purposely spam the extraction path with a large number of files. Tarbomb can be easily avoided decompressing the tar file using "extract to new folder" option.

Apply encryption to TAR archives

Tar standard does not implement data encryption, but an existing TAR package can be made password protected compressing it in 7Z, ARC, PEA, or ZIP format, all supporting encryption.
This operation can be performed with PeaZip utility in a single pass using "TAR before" option and chosing a final archive format supporting encryption.
