.CAN File

File extension: CAN
File type: Encrypted File


Notes about the CAN file extension:



Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The CAN file type is primarily associated with '.Can Encryptor/Decryptor'. .Can is a way of encrypting your files, so they can not be viewed or accessed without decanning them. They can either just be canned or cancoded. The cancode is a 5 digit code that can be entered before canning and then has to be entered again when decanning. It's been reported that if the file has not been coded that a simple rename to the original file name will allow the file to be opened by the appropriate archive program (e.g., RAR, ZIP, etc.).
