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.
If you are looking for a quicker compression program with the best archiving features (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.
