What is a(n) ARC file??

An ARC file is a digital archive that is composed of a .ARC file extension that has been compressed from its original source.

The .ARC format is used to store files that have been compressed from their original source. It can be compression formats such as ZIP, 7Z, RAR, TAR or GZIP. The most common use case is compressing an archive with the .ZIP extension in order to decrease its size and make it easier to share on a networked device like a USB drive.

An individual may open an .ARC file either with an application or by downloading it from the internet since it can also be opened with any text editor that supports text formats such as TXT or DOCX without having the need for any special software.
