While Sage Backup is a popular type of 000-file, we know of 10 different uses of the .000 extension. Different software may use files with the same extension for different types of data.

Virtual CD Image

.000 files are virtual CD image files used by Virtual CD, an application that emulates the contents of compact discs or CDs. These .000 files are ISO files with additional headers. ISO files, also known as image files, are the contents of the CD. These include data, videos, music, software, etc.

The Virtual CD software lets your computer read the .000 virtual CD image file like the original CD's contents even without the physical medium itself.

With the Virtual CD software, storing the virtual CD image in your computer hard drive lets your operating system think that it's reading the original disk. It also allows you to create copies or clones of your CDs for backup purposes.

Stacker was the alternative to buying extra storage peripherals that were very costly for laptops at that time.

Stac Electronics, a technology company, founded in 1983, developed and released the Stacker disk compression utility.
