How to open PBI files

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

What is a PBI file?

PBI files are PC-BSD Installer Package files, which you can read more about below.

The PBI file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So a PBI opener may not be able to open all kinds of PBI files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
