What are CRC files and how to open them

Are you having problems opening a CRC file or just wondering what they contain? We explain what these files are used for and show you software that we know can open or otherwise handle your files.

What is a CRC file?

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.
