File extension.tar
CategoryCompressed File
DescriptionThe TAR file format was initially developed within a Unix environment with a purpose to support tape backup procedures. Subsequently it has been used for file archiving purposes and to collect multiple files into one file for storage or distribution. TAR is also the name of an application that handles TAR files. TAR, despite still being quite popular, particularly in the Linux platform, does have some shortcomings, which have been addressed through new versions of the format.

Technical DetailsA TAR file is a collection of files into one file. It is not compressed by default. A number of compression applications exist which can then be used to compress the entire TAR file, such as gzip. If compression is applied then this changes the file extension from.tar to .tar.gz to denote its compression. The new additional suffix is dependent on the type of compression used. TAR files consist of a file header and file data rounded up to a multiple of 512 bytes.

File extension.lzh
CategoryeBook File
DescriptionPopular 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 DetailsThe 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.
