RIM file extension - BackupSoft backup

What is rim file? How to open rim files?

File type specification:

Backup file type icon Backup file type

The rim file extension is used for backup files created with BackupSoft.exe program, that was bundled to some external hard drives sold by Acer or Toshiba.

It seems like the program is not supported in Windows 7, and users might find trouble while restoring backups from .rim files. If you experience this, try to run BackupSoft.exe in Windows XP compatibility mode.

This rim file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.

Help how to open:

You can restore .rim backups in the BackupSoft.exe program, often bundled with external drives.

How to convert:

There is probably no real way how you can convert this particular file type to anything else.
