Opening SFO files

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

What is a SFO file?

Files that contain the .sfo file extension are most commonly used by the CuteFTP FTP program for the Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. These SFO files store the search settings that are used by the CuteFTP application for FTP connection purposes.

The .sfo file extension is also used for Bitstream font files. The Bitstream application is used for font creation by many professional ad agencies, graphic designers and desktop publishers.

The Sony PlayStation gaming console is also known to use the .sfo file suffix. These SFO files are used to save the settings files for the Sony PlayStation gaming console.

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.
