The .tar.gz file format is a combination of TAR packaging followed by a GNU zip (gzip) compression. It is commonly used in Unix based operating systems. This type of files can contain multiple files and most often they come as package files, programs or installers. On MS-DOS platform, .tgz is used as short of tar.gz because MS-DOS can’t recognize a file type containing two dots and more than three characters after the dot.
