Opening MENC files

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

What is a MENC file?

The MENC file format is typically associated with encryption for mobile storage devices. MENC files are encrypted files that have been created by mobile devices which operate on the Windows operating platform. The files that are stored with the .menc file extension are encrypted backup files of a file that is on a mobile Windows device.

The MENC files contain encrypted copies of a user's original files along with file header information. The MENC file format allows for the secure storage of files on external storage media. The .menc extension is what allows the user to see that the file has been encrypted.

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.
