Currently the need to store and share files is very large, so people have devised compressed files to meet this demand. In particular, file compression reduces the size of the file to save memory when storing or bandwidth when sharing via the internet. In addition, file compression helps us to combine multiple files and multiple folders into a single compressed file, so it is also very convenient when we share that file to others.
File decompression is a software that reads the contents of a compressed file and then creates the compressed files and files in the compressed file.
Types of compressed files
Currently there are many types of compressed files, but on Windows, the compression format. . Inside:
