UE2 File

What are UE2 files and how to open them

Are you having problems opening an UE2 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 an UE2 file?

An .UE2 file is an UltraCompressor 2 Encrypted Archive file.

These files are used to compress and encrypt multiple files and folders into a single file. This is especially useful for shielding confidential information or shrinking a sizable group of files for easier access or transportation.

The key distinction between .ue2 files and zip files lies in the methods used for their compression and encryption: .ue2 files make use of a proprietary algorithm, while zip files employ a widely accepted and standard algorithm. The encrypted contents of .ue2 files are secure and private, as they can only be accessed with the correct password or decryption key.

How to open UE2 files
