Opening EDB files

Did your computer fail to open an EDB file? We explain what EDB files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your EDB files.

What is an EDB file?

Files that contani the .edb file extension are most commonly used by mailbox data files that have been saved by the Microsoft Exchange Server.

EDB is an acronym for Exchange Database. The EDB files are exchange database files that store in-process and non-SMTP messages. These files are formatted using the b-tree structure. Each EDB file has a corresponding STM file which contains the actual SMTP messages.

Adobe Photoshop also uses the .edb file extension. In the PhotoShop application, the .edb file suffix is used for extended digital books that have been created with the application.

The ACT! email also uses the .edb file extension. These EDB files contain email data files that are used by the softwarend ACT! email data files.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
