Opening DSK files

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

What is a DSK file?

Files with the .dsk extension are most commonly associated with disk image files. These files normally contain a copy of the data that is on a diskette. The DSK file format preserves the disk info and are useful for archiving disks onto a computer hard drive.

The .dsk file extension is also used for Delphi desktop files, Desk files, Novell NetWare disk driver files, ZX Spectrum emulator files, Lotus Notes design elements files, SHARP MZ-series emulator files and Simple IDs database files.

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.
