WARC file extension - Web ARChive file format

What is warc file? How to open warc files?

File type specification:

Archive and compressed file type icon Archive and compressed file type

Files with warc file extension are associated with the WARC (Web ARChive file format), a successor of Internet Archive ARC format used for combining multiple digital resources into an aggregate archival file together with related information.

The WARC supports the harvesting, access, and exchange needs of archiving organizations.

The WARC also uses warc.gz file extension.

This warc 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:

This file type is not meant to be opened directly, there is no software that could open and work with it directly, or there is no information available in public sources about opening this file type. This is usually the case of some internal data files, caches, temporary files etc.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .warc file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
