A file archiver is a computer program that combines a number of files together into one archive file, or a series of archive file, for easier transportation or storage. Many file archivers employ archive formats that provide lossless data compression to reduce the size of the archive which is often useful for transferring a large number of individual files over a high latency network like the Internet.
