This is one of the most common file compression formats. It was created by Russian programmer Evgeny Roshal. The format allows one to break up an archived file into several parts, to block an archive to prevent accidental modification, and to enhance data recovery (helps to renew a damaged archive). It has a 128-bit AES algorithm.
This is a file compressor format in a Unix environment with the use of the LZMA2 compression algorithm. It’s a container for only one file, so it’s used in tandem with the tar format (tar.xz). The XZ Utils tool serves as the source program for development.
