R00 File - opening and understanding

Did your computer fail to open a R00 file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .R00 files.

What is a R00 file?

Files with the .r00 extension are created by the RAR archive application. The RAR file format is used to compress large files and volumes of multiple files into a compact file folder. The RAR format is very similar to the popular ZIP file format, although RAR files have increased compression ratios than what ZIP files can offer.

RAR archives can be split into multiple volumes in order to make storage and distribution of the files easier. When an archive is split into multiple volumes, the first volume of the archive will be given the .r00 extension. In order to open the split archive, all volumes of the file must be present.
