❔ What is a TAR.BZ2 file?

A tar.bz2 is a file format for packaging multiple files and directories into a single file. First the files and directories are archived into a tar file. TAR stands for Tape ARchive and is an ancient format (in computer years!) that was initially utilised for backing up data into magnetic tape. It doesnt actually compress the data.

The tar file is then compressed into a bz2 file, which utilises the Burrows–Wheeler compression algorithm. It does a better job compressing file than older compression formats but is considerably slower.

This method of archiving is commonly used in unix/linux environments to package and distribute software and other files.

A tbz2 is the same file type but with a different file extension.

If you are looking for a quicker native solution with all the bells and whistles (e.g. encrypt data, image size reduction & watermarks, remove personal data from files, convert doc to pdf, share in the cloud and more), then you should check out latest version of WinZip. Download WinZip from here
