A W01 file may also be a backup data file created by Samsung Recovery software, a program that comes with Samsung computers to backup and recover data. It contains a partial backup of a computer system that can be restored if all other necessary backup files are present.

More Information

W01 files are located in the \​SamsungRecovery\​ directory. The files are saved in a proprietary format and can only be opened and restored with the Samsung Recovery software used to create them.

NOTE: Samsung Recovery was originally called Recovery Solution but changed to Recovery with the release of version 6, which followed version 5.6.

Common W01 Filenames

init.w01 - The name of the backup that contains the factory image (formerly called initial image), which is an image used to restore the computer's original factory firmware and settings.
