SYMOTOM,

Does the site or source of the file have information on what type it is?  We are really going to just be guessing at the type of file.  This site (http://filext.com/detaillist.php?extdetail=ace&Search=Search) has information on the most common sources of files with an .ace extension.  If it is a WinAce compressed file then it can be opened with the Zip programs listed.  There may be other Zip programs that also support that type of compression and file.

I would be careful just guessing at the file type and use the website or source of the file for information first.  The page I provided also list other programs that use the .ace extension and so I would look through that list before just trying the first option.  If the file is really important then I recommend opening making a backup before trying to open just as a caution in case the file is damaged when the program tries to open it.
