Notes about the RIP 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 RIP file type is primarily associated with 'Lotus Notes' by IBM.
This was a Lotus product that has since been bought out by IBM. Lotus Notes and Domino are a fundamental component of IBM Workplace, offering namely email and other collaboration tools. NOTES.RIP file records Notes errors. Since Notes tends to shut-down when this file is created it is often known as a "rest in peace" file.
