    Complementing: DIZ stands for “Description in Zip File.”. DIZ FILE describes the program or files within a .ZIP archive were originally used for distributing files via BBS (bulletin board systems). The information contained in FILE_ID.DIZ files provided system administrators with helpful descriptions of each file that was uploaded to the system. 😉
