What are LZMA files and how to open them

Are you having problems opening a LZMA file or are you simply curious about its contents? We're here to explain the properties of these files and provide you with software that can open or handle your LZMA files.

What is a LZMA file?

A .LZMA file is a LZMA compressed file.

A file with the .lzma file extension has been compressed (reduced in size) with the Lempel-Ziv-Markov chain algorithm. LZMA files are similar to other compression algorithms like ZIP that compress the file's data to save disk space. Still, LZMA compression is known to provide faster decompression times compared to other algorithms.

You will need to decompress the file to restore it to its original format.
