What is an .C50 file?

.C50 is Split Multi-volume ACE compressed file archive

The c50 file extension is associated with WinACE. Its one part of a multi-volume compressed ACE archive.

ACE is the native format of WinACE archiver. In WinACE you can split a huge archive to a few smaller files, which are called volumes.

WinACE uses this split file sequence for multi-volume archives:

  • .ace or exe (SFX) for first volume
  • .c01, c02, c03 ....etc. for any additional volumes

The ace file extension is used for the native format of WinACE archiver. WinAce is not just another archiving shell. With it's own powerful compression format ACE and built-in support for other popular compression types like ZIP, RAR and MS-CAB (to name a few), WinAce could actually become the only archiver you need.

In order to unpack the multi-volume ACE archive, you need to place ALL of the split parts in the same directory and start extraction of the first volume. The program will automatically use all of the parts to extract the content of the archive.


How to open:

The *.c50 file is only one part of WinACE split compressed archive. If you want to extract this file, you must have all parts of the WinACE split compressed archive. Open the first part of WinACE (*.ace file) split compressed archive in WinACE application and extract files from WinACE split compressed archive.

How to convert:

It is not possible to convert only one part of ACE multi-volume archive. Only complete ACE archive can be converted in to another archive or compression format. The easiest way how to convert complete ACE multi-volume archive is to decompress the ACE archive with the use of WinACE and repack the content with another compression or archive application of your choice.
