What is an .DTI file?

.DTI is Microsoft Windows application log

The dti file extension is used by Microsoft Windows for generated application logs that are created by the Task Monitor service.

In Windows 98 and Windows Me, the Task Monitor tracks which programs are launched and how they load from disk, and it records the info in the Applog folder.

The Defrag utility then uses this info to provide special optimization for the program files you use most often. Rather than rearranging the clusters of these files in sequential order, Defrag rearranges them in the order they're loaded when the program launches.


How to open:

The dti files are used for internal purposes of Microsoft Windows.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .dti file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
