Developer: RARLAB
File type: WinRAR Compressed Archive
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .r0. Files with the file extension .r0 can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .r0 files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .r0 file?

These are the compressed files that are used by WinRAR or RAR programs. These programs are the most common utility for compressing and archiving files especially in Windows. This program is popular not only because it is user-friendly but also because it is powerful in backing up data and reducing the sizes of email attachments as well as in decompressing RAR and ZIP files. When users compress files through WinRAR, the archive created is what is known as R0 files which can either be a standalone archive or only a multi-volume archive part. All the compressed parts of one large file are saved as R0 files. These files can be restored back into its original state using WinRAR and RAR after a series of multi-volume archive files have been downloaded. In a MAC OS environment, R0 files can be opened using the Dare to be Creative Archiver; a tool that is used to open almost all archive formats like RAR, ZIP, Stuffit, etc.

how to open a .r0 file?

Launch a .r0 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 .r0 file will open it.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .r0 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, .r0. 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.
