Opening R34 files

Have a problem opening a .R34 file? We collect information about file formats and can explain what R34 files are. Additionally we recommend software suitable for opening or converting such files.

What is the .R34 file type?

Filename extensions like .r34 belong to the Multi-part RAR Archive Volume (.r01 through .r99) file type. RAR is a proprietary data compression algorithm and a CLI utility by E.Roshal. Its GUI-based Microsoft Windows counterpart is a well-known archive manager WinRAR. Support for multi-part archives is a standard functionality in RAR/WinRAR and most of the other RAR-compatible archivers.

A multi-part RAR archive consists of multiple smaller volumes that are easier to manage and transmit over networks. The older naming scheme calls for assigning each volume an extension with a numeric counter, like .r34, to indicate its order within the archive. As the first volume always receives the standard .rar extension, the .r34 file is the thirty-sixth part of the archive. Instead, the newer naming convention makes use of a dual extension pattern (.part1.rar).

RAR archive volumes, like .r34, can be opened and processed with RAR/WinRAR as well as a number of other archive managers. Although it is sometimes possible to partially extract data from an individual volume (e.g., .r34), complete extraction requires availability of all of the archive's volumes.
