What is an .ECH file?

.ECH file extension is created by SourceForge.net. .ECH has been classified as Various data Files.

.ECH is EasyChem saved data

The ech file extension is associated with the EasyChem, a software for draw chemical molecules, available for Linux and Mac OS X operating systems.

The ech file stores saved data.

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

Currently, .ECH file type is not actively used and is obsolete.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 EasyChem to work with *.ech files.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .ech 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.
