What is a T64 file?

A T64 file contains a game or program copied from a Commodore 64 tape storage device. It stores an exact copy of a game or program in the Commodore 64 Tape (T64) format, including a header, a directory of files stored on the tape, and the data for each file. T64 files are supported by select emulators of Commodore 64 (C64), a popular personal computer from the 1980s.
