The rec file extension was also used by Smith Micro's QuickLink III fax software for received faxes (I think hfx was used for sent faxes). This software was bundled with Boca Research's Tidal Wave modem. I gather that it was also included with the HP Pavilion.

I was wondering if you can actually convert a video game replay which is saved in .rec format into a video format like .mp4 etc.

My pictures are converted to REC files. I'm really worried about it. How can I get it in .JPG format?
