.sit file extension
- Compressed (Macintosh) StuffIt Archive. This is a compressed file
StuffIt is a proprietary algorithm. It was originally available for Mac only, where it became quite popular. It is now also available for Windows and Linux platforms.
Be aware that files compressed on a Mac may contain characters in the file names which are illegal on Windows, and that this can prevent some .sit files from being decompressed on Windows.
For more information see:
- www.stuffit.com - Further information and purchase of StuffIt.
- http://my.smithmicro.com/win/stuffit/expander.html - Download page for free StuffIt expander (de-compressor). Research suggests that this only opens some .sit files but not all.
Can you add to this? Do you know of any applications not already listed which will work with .sit files, view .sit files or open .sit files? Are you able to contribute any additional reference information or file format information about .sit files or have you spotted any errors or omissions?
