    Default extracting bz2 files

    Hello

    Can some one tell me how I can extract bz2 files? Does Win Zip support it or would win rar support it?

    Also Does bz2 compass files better then GZ?

    I think Winzip extracts bz2 files. I dont use it anymore. I use Powerarchiver, which does most formats, including zip and rar.

    IIRC winrar does extract bz2 tarballs.

    Yes, by-and-large it does compress better than .gz

    Almost all free (Shareware incl) compress/extractor apps will do .tar .gz .bz2 .7z etc etc

    Just pick whatever you like most and chances are it will
