    I can see these archive format options in the Backup File Creation settings for BackWPup. Could you explains in layman's terms the difference between those four formatting options?

    Zip,
    Tar,
    Tar GZip,
    Tar BZip2

    Did you try Google? They are just some archive formats.

    Wikipedia has a list with some more formats and a short description to it, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_archive_formats.
