What is a QIC file?
Backup file created by the backup utility included with Windows 95 and 98; saved in the QIC-113 format; contains a collection of files in a compressed archive that are expanded when restored using the Windows Backup program.
QIC files can also be opened by Roxio's "Backup My PC" software. However, Roxio no longer offers this product.
NOTE: The QIC file format is not compatible with the Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7 backup and restore utilities.
