Compressed Files

Compressed files use file compression in order to save disk space. Compressed archive formats can also be used to compress multiple files into a single archive. Several open and proprietary compression algorithms can be used to compress files, which is why many different compressed file types exist.

Common compressed file extensions include .ZIP, .SITX, .7Z, .RAR, and .GZ.
