Information about ZIP and TGZ file formats

Full name ZIP - ZIP Archive TGZ, Gzipped Tar File
File extension .zip, .zipx .tgz
MIME type application/zip application/gnutar, application/x-compressed
Developed by Phil Katz, PKWARE, Inc. Unknown
Type of format Data compression Archive
Description ZIP is an archive file format that supports lossless data compression. A .zip file may contain one or more files or directories that may have been compressed. The .zip file format permits many compression algorithms, though DEFLATE is the most common. The Gzipped Tar File (TGZ) file extension can best be explained by calling it a traditional zip file. However, this type of file extension can handle much larger files than standard zip functionality will allow. These are also sometimes known as gzip files. Because of their origination, TGZ files can easily be handled and extracted when using a Mac or Linux operating system. However, Windows cannot handle TGZ files without some help. You will either have to convert the TGZ file or install an app on your PC on a Windows computer.
Technical details ZIP files are archives that store multiple files.ZIP allows contained files to be compressed using many different methods and simply storing a file without compressing it. Instead, each file is stored separately, allowing different files in the same archive to be compressed using different methods. The TGZ file format was created by both Mark Adler and Jean-Loup Gailly in the early 1990s. It was created explicitly for use on the GNU project. The most recent update took place in June of 2013. The file format and associated software application were developed to compress very large files and decompression. While similar to commonly used zipped files, a TGZ extension can handle much larger files. Another difference is that zipped files can include multiple files in their compression, while a TGZ is just the compression of a single file that is very large.
