TGZ File Type


TGZ is a gzipped tar file that is compressed using the GNU zip program. This file extension can be opened by extracting the contents of it or using programs like 7-Zip, WinRAR, and WinZip. The TGZ file extension contains a tarball (compressed archive) of multiple files and directories in an OS-independent format. The use of this file format means that TGZ files are compatible with all OS's because they only contain archived data. Further it allows for better compression than other formats because it does not include any metadata which reduces the size of the data to be compressed.
