.rcd File Extension

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

what is a .rcd file?

The pcAnywhere Recorded Session File is stored in the RCD format and is affixed with the RCD extension, and is used by the pcAnywhere software. These RCD files are generally classified as video files that contain single or multiple screen recordings of the remote desktop environment being used for technical support logs. They are encoded with proprietary specification and can be converted to an MPG or AVI video format. Converting these files would require separate screen recording software for recording. The pcAnywhere software is a tool for accessing your personal computer over a network from a PC at a different location. The pcAnywhere Manager is in charge of configuring the host and remote computers during recorded or remote control sessions. These recorded sessions can also be played back and screen shot captured. The Symantec pcAnywhere 12.5 software can be used in Microsoft Windows based systems to access and run RCD files.

how to open a .rcd file?

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

a word of warning

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