Description IMG files are disk image files that store information otherwise available on the disk the image was created. Such files can be stored on the hard drive but are treated by said computer like a disk drive or an optical disc. Programs like SlySoft's CloneCD can create such files as well. The IMG files received in this way hold an exact copy of a disc, thus enabling burn an exact copy. IMG files are also created for backup reasons. In some cases, renaming an IMG file's extension from ".img" to ".iso" allows other programs to open the file. In computing, tar is a computer software utility for collecting many files into one archive file, often referred to as a tarball, for distribution or backup purposes. The data sets created by tar contain various file system parameters, such as timestamps, ownership, file access permissions, and directory organization.
Technical details Even though those IMG files were created and developed by Apple to be used on Mac OS 9 and older versions, they can also be opened on devices that run Mac OS X. By now, DMG is the new and more developed alternative IMG files. Renaming a file with an IMG extension to display an ISO extension may, in some cases, enable other programs to view and open these files as well. A tar archive file contains uncompressed byte streams of the files which it contains. Various compression programs are available to archive compression, such as gzip, bzip2, xz, lzip, lzma, or compress, which compress the entire tar archive.
