Opening SVD files

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

What is a SVD file?

Files with the .svd extension are most commonly associated with the Microsoft Word word processing application. When a user is working on a document in Microsoft Word, the application automatically saves the document at set intervals. This prevents the user from losing all of the file progress in case of a system or application crash. When the application performs this auto-save function, it creates a SVD file containing the progress of the Word document.

The .svd file extension is also used for video CD files.

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.
