What Is the File Extension TC?

Save

In computer terminology, encryption means scrambling or protecting the contents of a file or folder so that it cannot be viewed by unauthorized individuals. There are a number of software programs used for encryption, including one that utilizes the .tc file extension.

Program

  • Files with the extension .tc are created by True Crypt, a software program created by the True Crypt Foundation.

Identification

  • A file with the .tc file extension is known as a True Crypt volume.

Function

  • A .tc file contains all of the data contained on a CD, DVD, external hard drive or zip drive. The contents of the drive or disc have been encrypted and saved as one file with the .tc extension.

Effects

  • Files with the .tc extension require a password specified using True Crypt to be opened, which restricts access to the contents of the drive or disc. True Crypt even allows you to create a dummy secondary password that can be entered instead of the real password if you are forced to try and access a file under duress.

Systems

  • Files with the .tc extension and True Crypt can be used on Mac OS X, Linux, Windows 7, Vista or XP operating systems.
