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.
