Opening 2015 files

Did your computer fail to open a 2015 file? We explain what 2015 files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your 2015 files.

What is a 2015 file?

The .2015 file extension is used for a variety of file formats, some of which are accounting and tax preparation document file types that can be created using certain applications for Windows PCs, Linux and Mac OS X computers. With these accounting programs, a 2015 file may contain financial information and tax details that are related to 2015 tax forms. In these financial tools, a .2015 file may just be part of the default document output file, which contains the complete tax records and financial details saved by the user through the software.

Other programs also use the 2015 file format for their internal data file types and output files, such as data recovery tools. With these programs, a .2015 file may be a temporary file type generated by the data recovery tool from fragments of a file that was created in 2015. In certain instances, these 2015 files are 2015 versions of files that have been incompletely restored by the data recovery software.

To open these .2015 files, the software that created it should be used. In instances where these 2015 files are internal data files, it's recommended to leave these .2015 files alone, in order for the software to continue working properly.

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.
