What is an .ADI file?

.ADI is AOMEI Backupper Disk Backup File

Disk image created by AOMEI Backupper, a backup and recovery program for Windows users; contains a backup of a hard disk that can be used to restore hard disks when data loss or corruption occurs.

ADI files can be compressed and split into multiple files in order to reduce the size of the image file. You can also reduce the size of the file by choosing to only backup the used sectors of file systems.

NOTE: Active@ Disk Image also uses the "adi" file extension for saving disk image backup files.

File Type 2 Active@ Disk Image Backup File
Developer by: Active@ Data Recovery Software Category: Backup Files Format: Binary

Disk image created by Active@ Disk Image, a backup and recovery program; may contain a backup of a hard drive, media disc, or other external storage device; can be part of a split archive or a full backup.

ADI files can be used for full system backups and restores, as well as partial file system backups. They only store the occupied sectors of a disk and use compression, which helps to reduce the size of the backup.

Active@ Disk Image names split archives using the backup name followed by the number in the sequence. For example, a two-file split archive for "MyBackup" would have the files MyBackup1.adi and MyBackup2.adi.

File Type 5 Amateur Data Interchange Format
Developer by: Raymond R. Ortgiesen IV Category: Data Files

An ADI file is a data file saved in the Amateur Data Interchange Format (ADIF). It contains contact data in plain text that is exchanged between amateur radio logging software. ADI files are primarily used to transfer logbooks.

ADIF is used in the Amateur Radio Service, which consists of amateurs who use radio technology as a hobby. The format was released in 1996 and was adopted by a variety of Amateurfunk programs as the uniform format for exchanging logs between amateur radio enthusiasts. There are three specifications of ADIF. ADI files may be used by each specification of the format but ADX files (saved in an XML format) are primarily used by the third specification of ADIF.

NOTE: ADI files are also saved as .ADIF files.
