CRC is an acronym for Cyclic Redundancy Check. Files that contain the .crc file extension are used to store CRC code for a split file archive.
These CRC files are created by the Total Commander file management utility that is used for Windows operating systems. Total Commander is similar to the Windows Explorer utility, but it allows users access to added features such as file compression and decompression and access to FTP servers.
The CRC files that are used by this application verify that the files from a split archive have been properly restored back to the original file and that no information is missing or corrupt once the files are uncompressed and the archives are restored from split volumes.

File.org aims to be the go-to resource for file type- and related software information. We spend countless hours researching various file formats and software that can open, convert, create or otherwise work with those files.
If you have additional information about the CRC file format or software that uses files with the CRC suffix, please do get in touch - we would love hearing from you.
