.tlz File Extension

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

what is a .tlz file?

When TAR files are compressed using Lzip file compression, these zipped TAR archives are now known as TLZ files. These are also files using the Lempel-Ziv-Markov chain-Algorithm, an algorithm used for the performance of lossless data compression wherein lossless data compression refers to the compression process allowing the exact reconstruction of the original data into a compressed data. Although TLZ files are mostly used on UNIX systems, they are also supported by Windows and Macintosh systems where LZIP is installed. Opening TLZ files require applications like 7-zip, a program, a file archiver known for its high compression ratio; the 7zX file archiver wherein the data used in tests are the ones that determine the results of its compression ratio; as well as the Tukaani LZMA Utils, software for legacy data compression also known for its high compression ratio. TLZ files can be opened in Windows, MAC and Linux OS as long as these applications are installed.

how to open a .tlz file?

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

Equipped with a high compression ratio (as high as 7z format via LMZA and LMZA2), 7-Zip is an open-source ZIP archiver software that is usable on any computer regardless of operating system installed from the latest to the earlier versions and without any charge at all. Majority of the source codes used by this program are on the list of GNU LGPL License. These include unRar, RAR,ZIP, ARJ, XZ, Z, TAR, WIM, BZIP2, GZIP, CAB, HFS, LZMA, NSIS, CPIO, RPM, VHD, DEB, CHM, LZH, MBR, FAT, NTFS, XAR, DMG, CramFS, ISO, MSI, SquashFS, and UDF. Technically, formats ZIP and GZIP have a ratio of 2 to 10%, 7z has high ratio from 30 to 70% plus this same format has self extracting capability while both ZIP and 7z has AES 256 encryption. Other features include windows shell, file manager, command line version, FAR manager plug-in and localizations for languages up to 79.

a word of warning

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