.rk File Extension

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

what is a .rk file?

Files with the .rk extension are WinRK File Archives because they are compressed archives that file compression tools implemented with support for the WinRK format can create. This means that they contain data and several files compressed into one container. The compression used by .rk files are ROLZ3, FPW, ROLZ2, and PWCM. These files are also incorporated with file compression techniques such as one that’s used by .PAQ7 files. WinRK is a reliable file compression format because many file compression and decompression programs are implemented with support for this file format. This reliable file format supports an archive size that’s unlimited, and this makes it quick and easy to create copies or backups of large directories or file libraries.

how to open a .rk file?

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

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, .rk. 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.
