HA File Extension

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

What is the .HA file type?

The .ha extension is unambiguously associated with the legacy HA archiver compression format and file type. HA was an open-source project by Harri Hirvola who initially developed and released his HA archiver tool for MS-DOS (1993) and later ported it to Unix (1995). HA uses the HSC compression method, and the HA archiver tool is written in C with some Assembly-code sections for better performance. HA is an outdated archive format.

An .ha file is a binary archive file in the HA format. Most archive managers on all desktop and some mobile platforms provide courtesy backward-compatibility support for .ha archives.

An HA file can be opened and its contents extracted with any modern archive manager in Windows/Unix/Linux/MacOS and other operating systems.
