What is an .BMC file?

.BMC is Bitmap Cache File

Cached bitmap file created by the Windows Remote Desktop Client (RDC), which is part of Windows Terminal Services; stores multiple bitmaps that would otherwise be repeatedly sent from the terminal server to the client.

By caching images in BMC files, the RDC program provides a substantial performance increase for remote clients, especially for low-bandwidth connections. BMC files are commonly found in the [User Profile]\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Terminal Server Client\Cache directory.
