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.

Help how to open:

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