.ID File Extension

Disk identification file

Question: What is an ID File?

Have you found, downloaded or received an ID file, but don't know which software program is required to open it?

Before attempting to open an ID file, you'll need to determine what kind of file you are dealing with and whether it is even possible to open or view the file format.

Answer: Files which are given the .ID extension are known as Disk identification files, however other file types may also use this extension. If you are aware of any additional file formats that use the ID extension, please let us know.

How to open a ID file:

The best way to open an ID file is to simply double-click it and let the default assoisated application open the file. If you are unable to open the file this way, it may be because you do not have the correct application associated with the extension to view or edit the ID file.

This file format was added to our database by a visitor to this site, but no additional information was provided. We have yet to investigate this file type further, or there was not enough information available at the time to report accurately on the format.

Please check back soon for more information as we are constantly updating our file descriptions based on search frequency.

Tip: Try to open the ID file using a text-editor such as Notepad, as many file types contain simply contain unformatted plain-text and can viewed correctly using this method.

I recently upgraded my laptop and had to do a wireless file transfer from my old Toshiba running XP to my new HP running windows 7 premium.

An icon appeared on the desktop of the new computer and when I examined it before opening it I found it full of weird extensions including .in and .pd which are on this website requesting more information about them.

I looked further into the files and found that they are all part of a Microsoft hardware identification program looking for illegal software like the one that explorer 8 keeps trying to install called malicious software removal tool.
