What is a TAR.GZ2 file?

Compressed "tarball" that should be named with the .BZ2 file extension instead of ".gz2," which isn't a file format; likely misnamed because the user thought GZ2 files are related to the .GZ format; can be renamed with the ".bz2" file extension and opened with a bzip2 compatible utility.
