What is a ZST file?

A ZST file is a file compressed with the Zstandard (zstd) compression algorithm. It contains a file compressed with lossless compression at a level specified by the user. ZST files are used for reducing file sizes for various purposes, such as databases, file systems, networks, and games.

More Information

After compressing a file with the zstd algorithm, the .zst file extension is appended onto the file being compressed. For example, the sample.doc file becomes sample.doc.zst. When the file is decompressed the .zst extension is removed.
