An Archive File is a file format that is used to store a set of files along with information about those files (metadata). The purpose of creating an archive file is to store multiple files together, usually in a compressed format, which increases portability along with saving storage space on your disk.
Archive Files are also incredibly useful when you want to share a set of files with another computer user and allow you to quickly share a set of files without much hassle.
There are a number of popular archiving file formats in use today which have their own pros and cons. Other advantages of archive files include error detection and correction, encryption, comments, and more.
