RRA files

  esbe 19:23 19 Nov 2003

Hi, OS WindowsME,
In my Windows Temp folder, there is a 'RRA' type file ,anyone know what .rra files are, and is it ok to delete it?
I've had a look on various sites re: file extentions etc, but cant find .rra files listed.

Recheck the spelling, you may find that it's a .rar file, which is a compressed file similar to a zip file. If so, you can find decompressors for downloading if you wish to find what it contains.

BarryKeith, Hi, It's definitely an .rra extension, RRA type file.

A real Audio format perhaps? Do you use RealPlayer of any flavour?

I generally take the view that anyting in a temp folder more than a day old (or older than the last start up) can be deleted and this has never caused me any problems.

Peverelli,thanx- had a quick look, but dont really understand what RRA files are/do, as bit of a novice.
Diodorus, no I dont use Real Player.

If you have been playing online games it could be a file that was placed there by the game, it would be safe to delete but unless it is several megabytes in size, is not worth worrying about.

Hi, I haven't been playing online games, (Its 277kb), so I'll wait a while to see if any more suggestions, then do as you and Diodorus Siculus suggest,& delete it. Many thanx all, for your time and effort. cheers.

Try and open it up with Wordpad (check for virus first) and amongst the gobbledegook there might be something that'll give you a clue. Left click on it once, then hold the Shift button and then right click once. Select 'Open with' and then Wordpad.
