BSC File

Did your computer fail to open a BSC file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .BSC files.

What is a BSC file?

A .BSC file is a BinSCII encoded file. These BSC files are used to encode and decode Apple ProDOS files, an operating system used on the Apple II personal computer. These files give convenient and relatively error-free transmissions via email networks. BSC files are system files that you can run from GS/OS Finder. These text files allow for the file to travel over a network unscathed, and it can be reconstructed on the targeted system.
