.ALZ File Extension

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

what is a .ALZ file?

The ALZ file format is implemented into compressed files defined as ALZip archives, and the ALZ data encoding and compression technology is a proprietary file format that was produced by the developers of a file compression tool called ALZip. This software is created by ESTsoft for private deployment under widely used versions of Microsoft Windows. The ALZip file compression and decompression tool extends its support to more than 36 different module archives and compression programs, including support for the ZIP algorithm. The ALZ file format was released in 1999, and ALZip along with the ALZ file format has no higher limit for virtual file size and expansion type, and this program allows the Windows System to dictate the data size restrictions for its output files. Windows users should first install ALZip or a file compression and decompression tool that is implemented with support for decompressing files encoded and affixed with the .alz extension, in order to open and access the content of these ALZ files.

how to open a .ALZ file?

Launch a .ALZ 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 .ALZ 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 .ALZ files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .ALZ file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .ALZ file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .ALZ 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, .ALZ. 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.
