Opening ETL files

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

What is an ETL file?

ETL files are log files that have been created by the Microsoft Tracelog software application. This Microsoft program creates event logs in the binary file format. These logs are created from the kernel in a Microsoft operating system.

The ETL logs can contain information about disk access and page faults, logging high-frequency events and recording the performance of the Microsoft operating system. This information can be used to analyze and adjust voice response software applications.

The .etl file extension is also used by the Eclipse open development platform. The files created by the platform are saved with the .etl 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.
