Mac OS X will unpack a gz, .tar, or file automatically when you double-click on its icon.
(Note that it may be necessary to unpack some files twice.) If you would rather follow the UNIX-style instructions below you can use the Most modern Windows environments already know how to unpack files.
If using a version of Windows without inbuilt support for files, you will need to download a zip file extractor such as Just ZIPIt or the Info-ZIP tools.
Refer to the documentation provided with whichever program you choose for further instructions.
If, for some reason, you wish to unpack the files on a non-Windows platform, this is possible.
The conversion takes just a few seconds and the document is ready for downloading in ZIP format.
Thereafter, select ZIP as output and click on convert.
Converting from TGZ to ZIP format has never been easier.
Download the file immediately or send the link to your email for downloading at your own time.
A TGZ file is a TAR Archive file that is compressed using GNU ZIP software.
TAR archives pack a collection of files into a single file for easier distribution or backup, and are typically used on UNIX and Linux systems.
ZIP is a file format used for archiving which supports compression of lossless data.
A ZIP file may contain one or several files or directories that are already compressed.
