What is a VOL file?

Files that contain the .vol file extension are normally associated with a file archive format that is used by a variety of different video gaming software applications.

The VOL files that are referenced by the associated video games contain compressed video game files that store data that is used for a gamer's gameplay experience.

Some of the popular video game applications that use the VOL file format include Giants: Citizen Kabuto, Tribes, Red Baron and Earth Siege 2.

The FreeOTFE software application also uses the .vol file suffix. These VOL files contain the volume files that are created by the FreeOTFE program.
