.gzi File Extension

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

what is a .gzi file?

A group of files can be compressed in one file with a smaller size than the combined sizes of all files stored in the archive, and a Unix GZIP file is integrated with particular compression specifications also implemented into files in the more popular GZ format. These Unix GZIP files are encoded with GZIP compression specifications and stored in the GZI format. These GZI files are affixed with the .gzi extension, and multiple folders containing one or more files can also be compressed in one GZI file. Multiple GZI files can also be selected and compressed in one GZI file. The GZI file format is the replacement of the compression support implemented into Unix-based systems, called the COMPRESS algorithm. The GZI format provides better compression ratios than the older COMPRESS algorithm. The Smith Micro StuffIt Deluxe 2011 software can be used to decompress these GZI files and access its archived content. The Corel WinZip 16 Pro software is also integrated with decompression support for these GZI files.

how to open a .gzi file?

Launch a .gzi 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 .gzi 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 .gzi files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .gzi file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .gzi file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .gzi 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, .gzi. 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.
