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.tar.gz
CategoryCompressed File
DescriptionA .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 DetailsA 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.
