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

what is a .ustar file?

A uniform standard tape archive format file is integrated with data archiving specifications used to store uncompressed files in one archive file saved in the USTAR format. The content of a uniform standard tape archive format file is also implemented with USTAR formatting standards, and these standards integrate functionality extension definitions to the TAR archive format. Header definitions of these uniform standard tape archive format files are longer than the header definitions of a TAR file. Affixed with the .ustar extension, a uniform standard tape archive format file can also have a longer filename than the character limit required for filenames of TAR archives. More details associated to the files stored in a uniform standard tape archive format file are also available as opposed to TAR archive files, which provide limited information about each file included in the archive. These USTAR files can be created and decompressed to extract its archived files using many file compression and decompression tools implemented with support for creating and decompressing TAR archives.

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, .ustar. 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.
