Opening 011 files

Did your computer fail to open a 011 file? We explain what 011 files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your 011 files.

What is a 011 file?

Files with the .011 file extension are most commonly associated with split archive file volumes. File compression and archiving utilities can be used to combine a large batch of files into a single file archive. This archive can then be split into separate volumes, making it easier to distribute the files online or save the files across multiple storage disks. When these volumes are created, each volume is given its own file extension in sequence, such as .001, .002, .003, etc. The .011 file extension is normally given to the eleventh volume of the split file archive. In order to extract the contents from the file archive, all of the volumes must be present.

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.
