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 .tar.gz
Category Compressed File
Description A .tar.gzh file extension represents a collection of files grouped together as a Tape Archive File (TAR) that has been compressed using the Gzip compression application. This means that the file is given a double extension relating to both the archiving method and the compression method. Files of this nature are often referred to as a tarball.

Technical Details A file with the .tar.gz extension will be using gzip compression. This is achieved by identifying and temporarily replacing similar bits of data within the file, which reduces the overall size of the file. This method of compression is well established for use with TAR files and is now increasingly common for sending and receiving web page data.
