How to open CRU files

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

What is a CRU file?

CRU files are Crush compressed archive files, which you can read more about below.

The CRU file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So a CRU opener may not be able to open all kinds of CRU files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
