Opening BC! files

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

What is a BC! file?

Files that contain the .bc! File extension are most commonly associated with the BitComet P2P file-sharing application. This BitTorrent-compatible app uses the .bc! extension when it begins a download that is not completed.

If the BitComet app begins downloading a file and the download is interrupted, the software will save the partially-downloaded file with the .bc! extension. When the download resumes, the software will rename the file with the appropriate fill extension once the download has been completed.

It is important to note that if a download is interrupted and is no longer on the BitTorrent server once it can resume the download process, the file will just remain on the user's system with the .bc! file suffix.

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.
