The crc file extension is also used by Total Commander for its cyclic redundancy check files.

The CRC is a very powerful but easily implemented technique to obtain data reliability.

The CRC technique is used to protect blocks of data called Frames. Using this technique, the transmitter appends an extra n- bit sequence to every frame called Frame Check Sequence (FCS).

The FCS holds redundant information about the frame that helps the transmitter detect errors in the frame. The CRC is one of the most used techniques for error detection in data communications. The technique gained its popularity because it combines three advantages:

  • Extreme error detection capabilities.
  • Little overhead.
  • Ease of implementation.
