What are TBZ2 files and how to open them

What is a TBZ2 file?

A .TBZ2 file is a BZIP2 compressed TAR file.

Files with the TBZ2 file extension are TAR files that have been compressed with the bzip2 utility.

Since BZIP2 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.
