ADI files are backup files which are created by Active Disk Image. This software application is used for creating backup of data.
The data can either be on hard disk or any other media storage device. The backup can also be part of any archive or can be of full file. These file formats can be used for complete system backup along with the backup of a part of the hard disk. While doing backup the software uses compression to reduce the total size used by the backup file and the file is stored in the sectors of disk which are occupied already.
In addition to the problem described above, i.e. the lack of the appropriate application to support the .ADI file, there may be several reasons that cause problems with opening and operation of the data format:
A quite common problem is the lack of application in the appropriate version. Even if you have an application, with the help of which you should open the .ADI file, you may have a problem with it because of its version. Perhaps in previous versions the application has not yet supported the .ADI file, so download the update and check again.
If you have already installed the appropriate application, and it is the correct version, the file may not open correctly, because the operating system does not have information that this program supports the file. So you need to "show" which program the computer should use. To do this:
It also happens that the file you want to open is corrupt and therefore there is no such possibility. In this situation, you should find its different version, or ask a person from whom you got, to send it again.
