What is an ADI file?

An ADI file is a disk image created by Active@ Disk Image, a backup and recovery program. It contains a backup of a hard drive, media disc, or other external storage device. ADI files can be complete backups or part of a split archive.

More Information

ADI files are used for full system backups and restores as well as partial system backups. They store only the occupied sectors of a disk and are compressed, which helps reduce the files' size.

Active@ Disk Image names split archives using the backup name followed by the number in the sequence. For example, a two-file split archive for "MyBackup" would contain the files MyBackup1.adi and MyBackup2.adi.

How do I open an ADI file?

You can open an ADI file in Active@ Disk Image Explorer (Windows). To do so, select File → Open Image... from the program's menu bar. Then, navigate to and open your ADI file.

What is an ADI file?

An ADI file is a data file saved in the Amateur Data Interchange Format (ADIF). It contains contact data in plain text that is exchanged between amateur radio logging software. ADI files are primarily used to transfer logbooks.

More Information

ADIF is used in the Amateur Radio Service, which consists of amateurs who use radio technology as a hobby. The format was released in 1996 and was adopted by a variety of Amateurfunk programs as the uniform format for exchanging logs between amateur radio enthusiasts. There are three specifications of ADIF. ADI files may be used by each specification of the format but ADX files (saved in an XML format) are primarily used by the third specification of ADIF.

NOTE: ADI files are also saved as .ADIF files.
