2D File - opening and understanding

Did your computer fail to open a 2D file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .2D files.

What is a 2D file?

A .2D file is a Mahalito 2D disk image file. .2D files pertain to disk image files of the Mahalito 2D Disk Imaging application. The Mahalito 2D is a disk image utility software commonly used in old computers for disk image backup and writing purposes. An image pertains to computer data that include operating systems, drivers, applications, backup files, etc.

The Mahalito 2D Disk Imaging software stored .2D files in small-capacity storage devices like floppy disks.

The PC-9800 series, a line of computers manufactured by the Japanese manufacturer NEC from 1982 to 2000, used the Mahalito 2D disk imaging tool.
