CRDOWNLOAD File Extension

Have a problem opening a .CRDOWNLOAD file? We collect information about file formats and can explain what CRDOWNLOAD files are. Additionally we recommend software suitable for opening or converting such files.

What is the .CRDOWNLOAD file type?

The .crdownload filename extension is used by the Google Chrome internet browser for files that are being downloaded. Normally CRDOWNLOAD files are incomplete, so they will not run or open if the user removes the .crdownload extension. Chrome will automatically remove the .crdownload extension upon a successful download. Thus CRDOWNLOAD files are temporary, they contain information received by the browser in the process of downloading files.

CRDOWNLOAD files that are available even if no file is being downloaded at the moment may be broken downloads from previous sessions of Google Chrome. While in most cases the browser will remove such incomplete downloads automatically, it may fail to do so in certain situations (system error, power outage, etc.). As a rule, such CRDOWNLOAD files are unusable and can be deleted. However, it may be a good idea to launch Google Chrome and let it handle such leftovers before starting to delete anything manually.
