TGZ The .gz filename extension refers to the GZIP file format and compression/decompression utility of the same name which was initially released in 1992. It is the extension given to files compressed using the gzip utility. Unlike other compression tools of the time, gzip was originally intended to be used as a tool to compress a single file as opposed to multiple files or entire directories compressed as a single archive. As a work around, multiple files can be archived using the TAR archive file format, then that single TAR archive would then be compressed using the GZIP format. This would give the file a filename extension of .tar.gz.
ZIP The .ZIP file extension format is a file archive and data compression format originally developed and released in 1989 by Phil Katz. With compatible zip format software, a file or a group of files can be packed (compressed) into a single .zip archive which can later be unpacked (decompressed). The zip file archive format facilitates the distribution of multiple files as single archives particularly over the internet and networked systems. Many operating systems have native support for the file format and can usually open zip archives without the need for third party software. Microsoft windows for instance has had native support for the ZIP format since Microsoft Windows 98, similarly Apple's Mac OS includes ZIP support through its default archive file handle Archive Utility.
