TGZ or .tar.gz files are Linux/Unix tar archives which have been compressed. TGZ files utilize GNU ZIP compression, so that they take up less space.
Extension txz
Alternative extension tar.xz
Category Archive/Compression file formats

A TXZ (or .tar.xz) file is a compressed tarball using the XZ compression method. Such archives are typically smaller in size than TGZ (.tar.gz) files because of XZ's higher compression ratio.
