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.

Teardown Encrypted Data

Developer Tuxedo Labs

A TDE file may also be 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, which include the destruction of 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 encrypted as TDE files to prevent gamers from obtaining or modifying proprietary work. The files are images and audio files that use compound extensions (e.g., .png.tde or .ogg.tde). For example, TDE files may be stock assets that Tuxedo Labs purchased a license for in Teardown, or they might store proprietary musical compositions composed by a Tuxedo Labs musician.

How to open a TDE file

You should not attempt to open TDE files. Instead, Tuxedo Labs Teardown references the files and loads their information.

However, Teardown modders have created tools to decrypt TDE files and use the assets they contain. For example, you can use TDEDecrypt (multiplatform) to decrypt a TDE file.
