The .hpk file extension is associated with HPack, an archive and compression utility. An archive utility compresses multiple files into a single archive that takes up less space for easier transportation and storage. The utility can then open the archive to restore the files to their original formats. HPack is platform independent, meaning it can run on any platform. The HPack utility is outdated as of 2010, so it should be used only for opening old archives. For compressing new files and creating archives, use a newer utility.
