Opening ADI files

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

What is an ADI file?

The .adi file extension is used for a disk image format, which was developed by LSoft Technologies, Inc. Also known as Active@ disk image files, these ADI files are generated by the Active@ Disk, a Windows program that was also created by LSoft Technologies, Inc. These .adi files are similar to other disk image formats like ISO and IMG.

An ADI file contains directories, sub directories and files. These are exact copies of files and folders that were copied from an optical disk through the Active@ Disk software. These .adi disk images can be mounted unto a virtual drive so as to access the files and folders in the ADI file.

The Active@ Disk software can be used to open and edit the content of these .adi files. This program can also be used to create virtual drives with support for mounting and opening ADI files. This Windows program can also be used to export these .adi files to other standard disk image formats.

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.
