What is a B6Z file?
A B6Z file is an archive created by B6Zip, a macOS utility used to compress and decompress files, including .ZIP, .TAR, and .RAR files. It contains one or more files compressed in the B6Z format. B6Z files are created in order to save space when sharing or storing large files, as well as to secure sensitive information in files.
B6Zip is free software distributed under the GPL v2 license. The utility supports a large variety of compression methods, such as LZMA, LZMA2, Deflate, BZip2, and PPMD.
The B6Z format uses the LZMA2 compression method by default. Some of the features of the B6Z format include open architecture, high compression ratio, metadata compression, and state of the art AES-256 encryption.
