Files that contain the .vdi file extension are most commonly used for the Oracle VM VirtualBox desktop virtualization application.
The VDI files that are used by this software are virtual drive files that can be mounted as a separate hard disk on the Windows, Mac and Unix operating platforms. These files can allow users to run applications that are written for different operating systems using a single hard drive.
The Digital Research GEM VDI software application also uses the .vdi file suffix. These VDI files contain bitmap image files that are created by the software.
The Virtuo CD Manager software has also been known to use the .vdi file extension. These VDI files contain disk image files that have been created with the Virtuo CD Manager program.
