What is a LZH File Type?

It is derived from the Lempel – Ziv – Storer – Szymanski (LZSS) compression scheme developed in the 1980s, but it has extensive compression using the Huffman dynamic coding. The acronym LZH comes from the names of inventors Lempel-Ziv and Haruyasu.

LZH is most commonly used in Japan, but it is supported by a variety of compression and decompression utilities such as Corel WinZip, WinRAR and 7-Zip. If you use a compression utility that supports the format and compresses your files with the LZH scheme, you are most likely to encounter LZH files.
