.tbz File Extension

Developer: N/A
File type: Bzip Compressed Tar Archive
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .tbz. Files with the file extension .tbz can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .tbz files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .tbz file?

A UNIX TAR archive program archives a group of files, but when a compressor such as Bzip compressors compress the archived files, these files become TBZ files as they are affixed with the TBZ file extension. Bzip and Bzip2 are Linux-based data compressors. Like other compressors, the main function of Bzip is to compress files in the archive so that they can be transferred to a hard disk easily. It is not easy to transfer files to a hard disk especially if they are very large files. It needs to be compressed first, which is why compressors are necessary especially when creating file backups. These TBZ files are computer markers that signal what type of programming language was used to create the file. Aside from BZIP compressor, StuffIt Expander also supports the TBZ files wherein these files cannot easily be opened without the right programs installed. The TBZ extension is also used by some TBZ2 files.

how to open a .tbz file?

Launch a .tbz file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .tbz file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .tbz files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .tbz file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .tbz file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .tbz files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .tbz. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
