Opening GBI files

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

What is a GBI file?

Files that contain the .gbi file extension are most commonly associated with the gBurner Systems' gBurner backup software. The gBurner software application allows users to create backup copies of their CDs and DVDs, creating multi-session discs and bootable data backup copies that they can use in the event that the original discs become lost or damaged.

The GBI file format allows for file compression, password protection, the encryption of file data, file archive splitting and checksum support abilities. This provides more versatility than many of the other backup file formats, which makes the GBI file format popular among computer users.

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.
