What is a TDE file?

A TDE file is a data file used by Tableau Desktop, a whiteboard visualization and analysis application. It contains data extracted from an external data source, such as a Microsoft Excel workbook, Microsoft Access database, or a .CSV file. The data may also be extracted from a remotely connected data source.

More Information

TDE files are used for storing external data in a format recognized by Tableau software. They are useful for keeping local copies of data so that the data does not have to be reimported from the external source again.

What is a TDE file?

A TDE file is an encrypted game data file used by Teardown, a video game developed by Tuxedo Labs. It contains an image or audio asset that Tuxedo Labs does not want players to access. However, modders have created scripts that allow them to decrypt TDE files.

More Information

In Teardown, players complete over-the-top heists in which they must frequently destroy walls, buildings, robots, and other objects. Tuxedo Labs officially released Teardown in April 2022 (though the game was available for early access in October 2020).

Some of Teardown's game assets are saved as TDE files. These images and audio files, which use compound extensions like .png.tde or .ogg.tde, are stock assets that Tuxedo Labs purchased a license for, so they could use them in Teardown. As such, Tuxedo Labs encrypted the assets to prevent players, who do not have a license to use the assets, from using them.

How to open a TDE file

TDE files are not meant to be opened. However, Teardown modders have created tools that allow them to decrypt TDE files and use the assets they contain. For example, you can use TDEDecrypt (multiplatform) to decrypt a TDE file.
