What is a tar.bz2 file?

A tar.bz2 file is basically two files wrapped into one. The first one is a tar file, a collection of files & folders wrapped into a single uncompressed tar file. The tar file then gets compressed into a bz2 file, utilising the Burrows–Wheeler compression algorithm. It does a better job compressing file than older compression formats but is considerably slower.

The file format is commonly used for backing up and distributing files and software packages in unix/linux environments. It's a newer version of the of tar.gz format.
