What is PIT file?

The PackIt Compressed Archive was a file compression format which was used by Apple on the original Macintosh computers. While it was a successful and popular file format back then, it has now gone out of the market, being completely obsolete and redundant in the computers used today. The PackIt Compressed Archive file format has now been replaced by more popular file compression formats such as Zip (.ZIP), RAR (.RAR), or Stuffit (.SIT) compressions. These tend to be more advanced in terms of runtime and functioning as opposed to the initial .PIT file.

Programs that support PIT file

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the PIT file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the PIT file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the PIT file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the PIT file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the PIT file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the PIT file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
