What is an .E05 file?

.E05 file extension is created by Esri. .E05 has been classified as GIS, GPS navigation and map Files.

.E05 is ArcInfo export data

The e05 file extension is associated with the ArcInfo, a full-featured geographic information system for Microsoft Windows operating system.

The e05 file stores exported data.

The ArcInfo is obsolete product replaced by ArcGIS software.

.E05 file format is deprecated and this file format is no longer supported.

Currently, .E05 file type is not actively used and is obsolete. This usually happens with system files in older operating systems, files from long-discontinued software, or with previous versions of some file types (documents, projects, images, etc.) that were replaced in later versions of the original programs.


How to open:

Use ArcInfo to work with *.e05 files.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .e05 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.
