.hki2 File Extension

Developer: N/A
File type: WinHKI HKI2 Archive File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .hki2. Files with the file extension .hki2 can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .hki2 files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .hki2 file?

A WinHKI HKI2 archive file is a compressed file integrated with compression specifications proprietary to the WinHKI software. These WinHKI HKI2 archive files are optimized for higher compression ratios in terms of compressing document files and folders containing digital presentation materials, word documents and text files. Higher compression ratios mean smaller sizes of the resulting WinHKI HKI2 archive file compared to the combined size of all document files and folders stored in the compressed file. These WinHKI HKI2 archive files are saved in the HKI2 format and are affixed with the HKI2 extension to differentiate its intended purpose, which is for compressing document files, from other compression format options provided by the WinHKI software, including the HKI1 format which was developed for the optimized compression of multimedia files like digital videos and images. An HKI2 file can be created and decompressed using the WinHKI application, and there are versions of this software developed for Microsoft Windows-based systems and Mac platforms. The HKI2 format was also developed to optimize the compression ratios of program files and installers of software packages stored in an HKI2 file.

WinHKI

WinHKI

WinKHI is a file compression tool from WinHKI that utilizes zip programs to create very small data files. It can extract and compress files in rar, tar, ace, and bzip formats, including archives in other formats. The compression and archiving techniques with zip programs significantly reduces the number of bits in files so transmission is faster over the Internet. The password protection included in the application for file security makes it suitable for email programs or uploading files to the internet. It employs HTML compression that reduces text pages, and picture compression tools are available to reduce photos and images. Archiving and file management tools like spanning, splitting, zip files, encryption and decryption, backup program creation, and zip software extraction support data compression. The archives are password protected to prevent tampering or accidental deletion, and are suitable for storage on the hard disk or Web-based disk storage. The WinHKI software package is compatible with Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP and Vista.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .hki2 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, .hki2. 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.
