Description Named after its Russian creator, the RAR format, standing for Roshal Archive, is a compressed file type. The compression technique used to create RAR files is proprietary and has been licensed to other paid and freeware compression file applications. The RAR format also provides features such as repair, which will attempt to restore part or all of the file when physical damage has occurred. The RAR format established itself as a rival to the ZIP file format due to its superior compression ratios.

Technical Details The RAR format allows for an extremely large potential file size, with 20 Exabyte's being the upper limit. The format permits spanning across multiple RAR files. This sometimes leads to the file extension being renamed from .RAR to .R01,.R02 etc. This is particularly useful when an archive needs to be transferred to removable media such as a memory card or CD/DVD. RAR, along with several other lossless file compression formats, is based on Huffman encoding.

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.
