Description

RAR is a proprietary archive file format that helps you archive and store important files as a group. What this means is that you can compress and distribute large files as a single file provided you converted them to the RAR file format.

RAR file format has many characteristics and benefits that include:

  1. 1. RAR makes smaller archives in the shortest time possible.
  2. 2. RAR files can be split into several files to allow the users to either download them separately or as a single file.
  3. 3. Another huge advantage of using the RAR file format is that it supports solid archiving that includes error correction, improved compression ratio, and data redundancy..

How to create and how to open an RAR file

Do you want to create a RAR file? Some several applications and programs allow you to do that. Out of the list of options, the two most outstanding are WinRAR and 7-Zip. You only need to select the folder you want to convert and add it to the archive.

If you want to open a RAR file, you can do that with several devices and programs, such as Windows Phone, Android smartphone, iOS devices, and Windows. To open your RAR file with Windows, simply install the RAR file software. Then, right-click the RAR file you want to extract, select the software you installed as the program you want to use for the extraction, and click on Extract Files. You can then select the folder where you want to store the extracted file(s) before clicking on OK.

Which other formats RAR can be converted into and why

RAR files aren’t common as ZIP files. So, you have to use commercial software to open the files. Also, the encryption algorithm on RAR files isn’t as secure as those of ZIP files.

To that end, here are some of the other formats and alternatives that can be used to open RAR files:

  1. 1. TAR
  2. 2. ZIP
  3. 3. 7Z

RAR files are usually converted into ZIP ones and vice versa. The latter format takes less time to get compressed so it is more convenient to work with if a user needs to deal with numerous archives.

Tar
Description
Files with the .tgz extension originate from archived TAR files compressed with gzip—the compressed files sports an extension of either .tar.gz or .tgz. The TGZ format is created for use in UNIX-based systems. The constituent TAR file serves as an archive for multiple files before compression into TGZ. TGZ file format is commonly used as an installation module in some operating systems' executable installation files.
Technical details
The TGZ file format was initially created by Mark Adler and Jean Loop Gaily, with the first release going public in 1992. TGZ was designed explicitly for use on the GNU project for open-source applications. The most recent update of the TGZ format was released in June 2013. The file format and its accompanying creator applications were developed to modify relatively large files. Relative to other common types of ZIP files, the TGZ files can store much larger data volume. Also, TGZ format differs from zipped files in that unlike the multiple files compressed to form .zip file types, .tgz files can only squeeze a single TAR archive file into TGZ.
