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.
TAR Archive Format TAR Converter
The TAR file (also known as a Tape Archive or Consolidated Unix File Archive), was originally authored by AT&T Bell Laboratories in 1979, in the early days of Unix, and further developed by various open-source developers. It’s a popular archive file format used to contain and compress multiple files into a single file archive while preserving file permissions. Unlike other archive formats, TAR files don't contain compressed data.
The TAR format was originally developed to support tape backups but it is now used to package together multiple files and folders (such as software packages) for easy storage and transfer. TAR files can be opened with a variety of programs, such as Corel WinZip, RARLAB WinRAR, 7-Zip, The Unarchiver, File Viewer Plus and Apple Archive Utility.
