A TAR file is also known as a Consolidated Unix File Archive and was developed by Jean-loup Gailly. TAR files are different to many other archive files in that they store files in an uncompressed format before the archive is then compressed using compression technology such as GNU Zip compression. TAR files are often found on Unix devices and they’re designed to group files together for easier distribution. TAR files consist of a file header and file data and were originally developed to support tape backups before being used for other purposes. To open a TAR file users can use File Viewer Plus, WinZip and WinRar.
