Introduction To The .bc! File Extension

What are .bc! extension files?

A .bc! file extension file is a BitCornet Incomplete Download file. BitCornet is a peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing program that is known to be compatible with software, such as Bittorrent and BitLord.

When you download a file using Bittorrent or BitLord and the download is incomplete, then the file will have a .bc! extension. The exclamation mark (!) in the BC! file extension is used to let users know that the downloaded file is incomplete.

In case the download is complete the .bc! extension will automatically change to the real format of the downloaded file, such as mp3, mp4, or wma. For instance, if you are downloading an MPEG file type but the download is incomplete then the file will show .bc! file extension. In case the download completes, the .bc! file extension will automatically change to the .mpeg file extension.

If a file with the BC! file extension is in the process of completing a download then it is recommended that you do not try to open it. The reason being that the file will be corrupted and then you will have to start the download from scratch.

What will happen if the connection between the server and client software breaks?

In such a scenario, the BC! file extension download will resume, provided your peer-to-peer (P2P) application is able to locate the exact file on its server(s).

In case the BC! file extension download does not resume automatically and you are using BitLord, then you may use the following steps to restart the download:

  1. Open BitLord and go to Preferences.
  2. Next click Task, uncheck Add bc! file extension, and then click OK.
  3. Next restart BitLord and then restart your download.
  4. Open the file when the download is complete.
