File Extension TZR Help


I have a compressed file with an extension of TZR how do I un-compress this to get the files from within?

Thanks.

not sure, but I think this is just a tar.gz file.
the gz used to be Z
so try:
Code:
tar -xvzf <file>.TZR
EDIT:
Ahh, and welcome to LQ Foruns

Cheers for the reply but it didn't work - not in GZIP format.

Never mind will just have to copy the file using zcat.

Thanks.

can you post the output of
Code:
file <filename>
if zcat works then it's just a compressed and not tared file.
try
Code:
gunzip <filename>
