File extension .zip
Category Compressed File
Description The .zip file extension is the most well known file type related to compressed and archived files. First released in 1989, the format is still widely used and is built into Microsoft Windows releases since 1998. It is also supported by Apple's OSX operating system. The ZIP format supports compression via several different techniques and even supports simply archiving of files without compression. Despite being 20 years old, the ZIP format looks set to continue to thrive whilst bandwidth and storage remain relatively costly.

Technical Details The compression techniques used to create a .zip file do so by compressing each file individually. This has the advantage of potentially using different appropriate compression techniques for each file within the archive, however under normal circumstances it limits the potential compression capability. Although the ZIP format allows for up to 10 different types of compression to be chosen, the DEFLATE method is the most common. DEFLATE is based on Huffman coding.

File extension .lzh
Category eBook File
Description Popular 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 Details The 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.
