How to open ASDF files

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

What is an ASDF file?

ASDF files are Advanced Scientific Data Format files, which you can read more about below.

The ASDF file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So an ASDF opener may not be able to open all kinds of ASDF files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.

Advanced Scientific Data Format

Through our analysis of ASDF files, we know that one use of the format is Advanced Scientific Data Format. We have not yet described in detail what these files contain and what they are used for, but our team is working tiredlessly through thousands of file formats. We'd love hearing from you if you have information about the format.
