Lzip is a data compressor that reduced to complete the losses. This program highlights for decompressing as quickly as gzip and compress more than bzip2, so this is a good alternative for both programs, and it is very suitable for archiving data and distribution of software.
You must take into account if you use Lzip for Windows you must do it from command line (previously known as MS-DOS), because this program has not an executable with a graphical interface.
Lzip is a clean implementation of LZMA algorithm. This program uses same return values using in bzip2 which you can use in scripts or pipes because they are safe (more than gzip). Format files of Lzip are designed for archiving data in a long-term and provide very safe check integrity. There is an almost inexistent probability to lose some data for decompression or errors or corruption.
