.hbc File Extension

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

what is a .hbc file?

A HyperBac compressed archive file is created using the HyperBac file compression and decompression software, and this program from Xceleon Technologies is implemented with proprietary compression specifications. A HyperBac compressed archive file is encoded in the HBC format, and files affixed with the .hbc extension are HyperBac compressed archive files. The HyperBack compression tool was primarily developed to provide users with better compression ratios for faster archiving of database files in smaller file sizes. Database system compatibility support implemented into these HBC files include Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, SharePoint, MySQL, IBM DB/2, SAP BRBackup and Sybase database management systems. A 90% database size reduction can be achieved with a database file or a set of database files and folders archived using HBC compression specifications and HBC encoding standards. HBC compression and encoding specifications and standards are proprietary to the Red Gate SQL HyperBac software.

how to open a .hbc file?

Launch a .hbc 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 .hbc 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 .hbc files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .hbc file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .hbc file will open the correct application.

Red Gate SQL HyperBac

Red Gate SQL HyperBac

Red Gate SQL HyperBac. Developed by Red Gate Software Ltd., is a compression and encryption tool for SQL Server backups. It can compress files up to 95% and provides users with an option to backup to other file formats like .zip. This program runs as a Windows Service and intercepts read and write requests whenever a user creates a backup or runs a restore. Because the application executes file compression and encryption externally, there is no need to modify or configure the SQL Sever. SQL Hyperbac works directly with standard T-SQL BACKUP and RESTORE, so no special syntax is needed and likewise, there is no need to alter back-up routines. It uses its own dictionary-based lossless compression algorithm and utilizes the compression storage formats SHRINK, SHRINKFAST (proprietary format), and DEFFLATE. HyperBac uses a 256-bit AES encryption to secure files and to prevent unauthorized access to confidential data.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .hbc 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, .hbc. 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.
