Type of format File archiver archive format
Description 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. RAR is a proprietary archive file format that supports data compression, error recovery, and file spanning. It was developed by a Russian software engineer, Eugene Roshal, and the RAR software is licensed by win.rar GmbH.
Technical details 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. The filename extensions used by RAR are .rar for the data volume set and .rev for the recovery volume set. Previous versions of RAR split large archives into several smaller files, creating a "multi-volume archive".
