.gca File Extension

Developer: N/A
File type: GCA File Archive
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .gca. Files with the file extension .gca can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .gca files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .gca file?

A GCA file archive contains files and folders or even a single file or folder compressed by a user of the GCA software. These encoding and compression specifications are integrated by the GCA application into these GCA file archives, and this program saves these files in the GCA format. Though a lesser known compression format, these GCA files are implemented with better compression ratios than some standard compression formats. This means these GCA files may have smaller file sizes compared to compressed files stored in other more popular compression formats. The GCA program preceded the DGCA application, and with this upgrade was also a set of improved compression specifications implemented into the GCA compression format. Some compression tools are integrated with security features that can encrypt the content of a compressed file and protect it with a unique password that can be assigned by the author of the compressed file or automatically generated by these programs.

how to open a .gca file?

Launch a .gca file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .gca file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .gca files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .gca file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .gca file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .gca files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .gca. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
