What is a .DIZ file?

DIZ files are text files that describe a program stored in a Zip archive. The files are typically brief, consisting of 10 lines of text or less. DIZ files were primarily used in bulletin board systems (BBS) to help the administrators better understand files uploaded to the system, but the BBS scene has since declined.

You may still encounter DIZ files in ZIP files that you download from the Internet. The most common occurrence is when people download illegally distributed content, and a DIZ file is included with the ZIP distribution of the unlicensed software. If you encounter a DIZ file, you can use File Viewer Plus to read the description it contains, edit the description, or convert it to another format.
