What Windows tool or program can I use to open a .tar file? I also have .tar.gz files that I would like to open.
High compression ratio in new 7z format with LZMA compression
Packing / unpacking: 7z, ZIP, GZIP, BZIP2 and TAR
Unpacking only: ARJ, CAB, CHM, CPIO, DEB, DMG, HFS, ISO, LZH, LZMA, MSI, NSIS, RAR, RPM, UDF, WIM, XAR and Z.
For ZIP and GZIP formats, 7-Zip provides a compression ratio that is 2-10 % better than the ratio provided by PKZip and WinZip
Strong AES-256 encryption in 7z and ZIP formats
Self-extracting capability for 7z format
Integration with Windows Shell
Powerful File Manager
Powerful command line version
Plugin for FAR Manager
Localizations for 74 languages
Winzip should also do the job fine
I prefer WinRAR. It uses up less RAM. Look here for a face-off between WinRAR and 7-zip.
