How do I save all Y files into a folder?

answer
  1. First follow the instructions above
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the file listing and click "Save All". If the button is disabled, it means your browser does not support this feature or it is not enabled.

    In Chrome, you can enable it by toggling chrome://flags/#native-file-system-api flag (copy/paste it into your browser address bar)

  3. Select an empty folder where you wish to extract the files. Please note: If you already have files with the same name, ezyZip WILL OVERWRITE THEM. Select target folder
  4. After you have selected the folder, the browser will ask for permission to access it. Click on "View files" followed by "Save changes". Select target folder Grant write access to folder
  5. It will then commence saving files and subfolders into the target you specified

What is ezyZip?

ezyZip is a free online utility for extracting y files from tar.Z archives. No need to install additional software as it runs in the browser. It supports a bunch of other file extraction and conversion options too.

Unlike other online zip conversion utilities, ezyZip does not require you to upload or download files to a server. It runs locally as a browser app, thus making it much quicker than other similar online conversion tools. There are no file size limits! This also ensures your privacy will be protected as no file data will leave your browser.

question

What is a tar.Z file?

answer
A tar.z file is basically two files wrapped into one. The first one is a tar file (sometimes referred to as a tarball), a collection of files & folders wrapped into a single uncompressed package. The tar file then gets compressed using the unix compress tool, a utility that uses the LZW compression algorithm. This style of compression was popular (e.g. rather than tar.gz & bzip2) in earlier years due to being faster and using less memory, at the cost of compression.

Tar.Z , .tz and .taz files are basically same but with different file extensions.
