Opening JOINED files

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

What is a JOINED file?

Files that contain the .joined file extension are most commonly associated with the HJ-Split file-splitting software application.

HJ-Split is used to take a large file and split it into several smaller files. This particular file splitting software supports files of up to 100GB in size. The purpose of the software is to make it easier for a user to distribute large files over the Internet and via email.

Once the file has been transmitted, the HJ-Split application can re-build the split file volumes into a single file so that the contents of the archive can be retrieved. The rejoined file is then named with the .joined file extension once this occurs.

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.
