Opening DATA files

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

What is a DATA file?

The .data file extension is given to the data files that have been created by and used for a variety of different software applications. These files can be used on the Linux, Unix and MAC operating systems. The majority of DATA files are saved in the binary file format.

DATA files can contain a variety of different file types including document files, project files, libraries and other different file types.

The CoreFSIF' program by Avanti and the Analysis Studio program both use the .data file extension. Database applications also commonly use the .data extension.

Font 2D resource files also contain the .data file extension.

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.
