Opening ALZ files

Did your computer fail to open an ALZ file? We explain what ALZ files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your ALZ files.

What is an ALZ file?

Files that contain the .alz file extension are most commonly associated with the ALZip compression software application. The ALZip software was created by ESTsoft Corp and supports approximately 30 different file compression formats.

Users often need to compress files that are large in size when those files need to be distributed over the Internet or sent via email. This makes the file more manageable and results in faster upload and download times. Users also use archive and compression utilities when taking a large batch of files and compressing them into a single archive file.

When the ALZip software is used to create a compressed file archive, the file is given the .alz file extension.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
