.bc File Extension

Developer: BitComet
File type: BitComet Partially Downloaded File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .bc. Files with the file extension .bc can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .bc files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .bc file?

P2P or Peer to Peer applications make use of different proprietary or open source file formats for storing the content of a file being downloaded using the application and saved as partially downloaded files of the software. The BitComet P2P software uses files appended with the .bz extension as partially downloaded files. These BC files may be file downloads momentarily paused or stopped by the user. Partially downloaded files in the BC format will not properly work when opened using a standard application for opening files in the format of the downloads, because these partially downloaded files must first be completed, and upon completion, BitComet will change the extension of these files into the format of the downloaded content. The BitComet file sharing application can be installed in Microsoft Windows-based systems to implement support into the OS for these BC files, and users can start downloading files shared on the Internet as BitComet torrents, which are saved in the standard TORRENT format supported by many P2P and file sharing applications.

how to open a .bc file?

Launch a .bc file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .bc file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .bc files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .bc file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .bc file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .bc files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .bc. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
