.dz File Extension

Developer: Dzip
File type: Dzip File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .dz. Files with the file extension .dz can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .dz files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .dz file?

The Dzip software is a command line application designed to integrate encoding and compression specifications into files and folders selected for compression by the user of this program. A Dzip file is stored in the DZ format and is appended with the .dz extension. These DZ files can be created and decompressed using the Dzip software. The DZIP compression format is known to be faster in creating a compressed file than other compression formats, and the DZ format may also implement better compression ratios than other compression standards. This means DZ files are compressed in smaller file sizes compared to other compression formats. This is why a DZ file may be included with the DZ application itself in some instances. Digital data compressed and stored as a DZ compressed file can be extracted quicker than other files implemented with other compression specifications and standards. Microsoft Windows users and those with computers running on Linux-based systems can use the Dzip application to create and decompress DZ files. There is also a version of the Dzip software for Mac platforms.

how to open a .dz file?

Launch a .dz file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .dz file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .dz files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .dz file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .dz file will open the correct application.

Dzip for Microsoft Windows

Dzip for Microsoft Windows

Dzip is an application use for compressing files. This software can fit in a floppy disk which means the program is literally small in size. Dzip uses the shell of Windows in which it fully integrated. The user may only drag and drop the files to the window and the files are now ready to be compressed with the .dz file. And the user may also extract the file by just dragging the files out of Dzip. Dzip upon extraction, it doesn't double the files by adding it to the temporary files and then copying them in the designated location. The software directly extracts the files going through that process. Thus, the user may experience a faster system. The user can send the compress file to anyone without Dzip for it has a self-extracting feature. This software runs in Windows 95 up to Window XP with 32-bit systems, only needs 130 kilobytes of disk space.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .dz files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .dz. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
