Notes about the WIP file extension:



To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps" and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.

The WIP file type is primarily associated with 'CyberScrub Privacy Suite' by CyberScrub LLC.. Formerly known as CyberScrub Professional Edition. This is a disk wiping tool. The .WIP files are created during the wiping process and should be automatically deleted at the end of the process. They generally contain random bits; nothing useful at all.
