How to convert ZIP to TAR?
You can convert ZIP to TAR with MConverter in three easy steps:
Choose ZIP files from your device
At the top of this page, drag and drop your ZIPs. You can also click to select ZIP files using your operating system's file picker. Another method is to press the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+V (⌘+V on Mac) to paste a ZIP file you have copied to clipboard. Converting a folder with ZIP files to TAR is also supported: simply paste or drag and drop it.

Alternatively, you can use the search field to quickly find the format you need, whether it's TAR or something else.
Download your TAR files, after MConverter has finished processing them
There's an option to automatically download the converted TAR files, so you don't have to press the download icon for each TAR. You may see a share icon as well. Use it to directly share the TARs with other apps.
About the formats
Archive/Compression file formats
ZIP is one of the most popular archive formats. It allows storing multiple files and folders inside a single file. Compression is applied to make the file smaller. As is the case with other archive formats, ZIP files are particularly useful for transferring whole folders over the web.
Archive/Compression file formats
AT&T Bell Laboratories
Originally used by Unix/Linux, TAR files are archives containing multiple files inside. Also known as tarballs, TARs are similar to ZIP, but they do not have any compression applied. This makes them quicker to create and extract.
However, it is possible to compress TAR files using bzip2, gzip, or xz compression. To do this, convert the TAR file to TBZ2, TGZ, or TXZ respectively.
