Opening $01 files

Did your computer fail to open a $01 file? We explain what $01 files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your $01 files.

What is a $01 file?

The .$01 file extension is most commonly associated with DOS pipe files. These files contain text files that can be “piped” by a DOS application. They are often used to debug software programs. The files are saved in text format.

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.
