Notes about the PAR 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 PAR file type is primarily associated with 'Parity Volume Sets'. Using parity volumes primarily allows one to recreate missing volumes from a set of files regardless of which file is missing and assuming that you have at least one parity volume for every missing file. Parity volumes are unique only to their specified file set. If the number of files missing exceeds the number of parity volumes it won't work.
