Opening HATHDL files

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

What is a HATHDL file?

The .hathdl file extension is used for a temporary file format that was created by the Hentai@Home Team. These HATHDL files are also known as Hentai@Home download files. These .hathdl files are generated by the Hentai@Home software when a user downloads content from the E-Hentai Galleries.

The Hentai@Home program is a third party application that was designed by the Hentai@Home Team for Windows platforms. This software is a P2P (peer to peer) gallery sharing and distribution tool that can reduce the workload of the servers of E-Hentai Galleries. The Hentai@Home Downloader tool, which is an applet that is built into the Hentai@Home program, creates these HATHDL files when a user is downloading content using this software from the E-Hentai Galleries.

Only the Hentai@Home program is recommended to be used when opening these .hathdl files. Aside from this, it's best to leave these HATHDL files alone because these do not contain human-readable data.

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.
