Opening R04 files

Did your computer fail to open a R04 file? We explain what R04 files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your R04 files.

What is a R04 file?

The .r04 file extension is created when a single archive file is split into separate archive volumes. File archiving software can be used to combine a large batch of files into a single archive folder. This file archive can then be split into separate volumes, making it easier to distribute the files over the Web or save the archive across multiple computer disks. The volumes of the archive are each given their own extension, such as .r01, r02, .r03, etc. The .r04 file extension is assigned to a single volume of the split file archive.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
