ZIP Archive Format ZIP Converter
The ZIP format was created in the late 1980s as a way of compressing files for archiving or sharing. Files are ‘zipped’ up into a new folder, usually saving it into a smaller file size. ZIP uses lossless compression and is reversible, so you can ‘unzip’ the folders and extract files without any impact on quality. As each file is compressed separately during ‘zipping’, you can easily extract or add individual files to a ZIP folder.
ZIP files became more popular with the rise in email use, as it was a simple way to share multiple larger files. The ZIP format is also often used to make back-ups, quickly transfer files between devices, and to allow quicker downloads from websites. Previously, users needed additional software to create ZIP folders. Now most operating systems, including Windows and iOS, let you easily zip and unzip files yourself.
CAB Archive Format CAB Converter
A CAB file is also known as a Windows Cabinet File and is a compression format developed by Microsoft. They were designed with a view to helping users install devices and system files and making the process more simple than having to rely on a multitude of floppy disks. The CAB file offers three different types of compression, namely Quantam, LZX and DEFLATE. They're popular because they compress across multiple files and ignore the boundaries that are in place between files. However, they're limited by the fact that every time there is a change the CAB file has to get recreated from scratch which is different to more popular compressed formats which allow for the compressed file to be updated on the fly as and when edits occur. To open a CAB file users can use 7-Zip, WinZip for both Windows and MacOS and File Viewer Plus. They’re easily opened as they’re a native file to Windows.
