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

what is a .macbin file?

MACBIN files are called Macbinary Encoded Files because they are compressed files encoded and saved in a binary format. The MACBIN file extension was developed by Apple and is categorized as data files. The MACBIN format consists of a finder header, a resource fork, and a data fork. MACBIN files are supported by various MACBinary formats such as MacBinary II and MacBinary III. MACBIN files are useful when it comes to sending Macintosh files to the internet. The .bin extension is also seen with MACBIN files. These files can also be opened using the Smith Micro StuffIt Deluxe 2011 and Smith Micro StuffIt Deluxe 2010 applications. Smith Micro StuffIt Deluxe is a program that allows users to compress files, secure them as well as send them and share them to others. Since MACIB files are compressed files, they play a big role in successfully transferring files to another disk for backups or for sharing them to other through email.

a word of warning

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