What are TBZ files and how to open them

What is a TBZ file?

A .TBZ file is a BZIP compressed TAR archive file.

Files with the TBZ file extension are TAR files that have been compressed with the bzip utility.

Since BZIP only compresses a single file to reduce its size, TAR is used first to archive multiple files into a single file. In that way, many files can be bundled together and compressed to reduce their size.
