File extension .cab
Category Compressed File
Description The CAB file extension is a compression format developed by Microsoft. Originally used to minimise the number of floppy disks required to hold installation data, the file format is now used to minimise the size of files downloaded from the web. The CAB format offers effective compression because it compresses across multiple files ignoring the boundaries between the files. CAB files are often linked with self extracting files due to the ease with which they can be recognised as CAB files.

Technical Details The CAB file permits three types of compression: Quantum, LZX and DEFLATE. Microsoft provide the ability to apply a digital signature to a CAB file. This allows a user to verify the authenticity of the file. CAB files are not constrained by a maximum file size that some compression files face. It is possible to spread a CAB file over multiple CAB files. A limitation of a CAB file is that it needs to be recreated every time it is changed, whereas other compressed formats allow for a file to be updated based on additions, removals or edits.

File extension .lzh
Category eBook File
Description Popular in Japan, the LZH file extension is named after the algorithm it uses to compress the data within the file, Lempel-Zip-Huffman. The file type is most commonly associated with the LHA utility, a freeware compression tool created in 1988. Although never hugely popular in the western world it remains popular in Japan, with the Japanese version of Windows 7 having a specific add on to cater for the LZH file.

Technical Details The Lempel-Zip-Huffman algorithm is a lossless compression technique. This means that the file is compressed without discarding any data and can be reconstructed to its original format. One reported disadvantage of the LZH file type is that there are perceived vulnerabilities that can be exploited in the file and avoid detection by anti-virus applications.
