File Type 2eDataSecurity Management Self-extracting File
.EXC File Association 2
Self-extracting file created by eDataSecurity Management, a program used to encrypt private documents; contains the exact same data as the source file but is encrypted in order to protect its contents; similar to the .ENX file.
The purpose of the EXC file is to allows users to more easily share their encrypted file with other people. The format is self-extracting, which allows a person to open the EXC file without using eDataSecurity Management. However, the receiver of the file must rename the ".exc" extension to ".exe" in order to open the encrypted file.
NOTE: eDataSecurity Management was discontinued after Windows Vista.
