.cfs File Extension

Developer: Pismo Technic
File type: Compact File Set Archive
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .cfs. Files with the file extension .cfs can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .cfs files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .cfs file?

Files developed as disk image content contain data associated to other files and even folders entered by the creator of the disk image project file, and files appended with the CFS extension are generally classified as data files and categorized as disk image files. Specifically, these CFS files are called compact file set archives encoded with specifications included as standards of the CFS format, and CFS stands for Compact File Set. These standards are integrated in the creation of these CFS files, and these files can be created, opened and viewed using the Pismo File Mount Audit Package software and the PT ISO Tool application, both of which can be installed in a supported Microsoft Windows-based system to provide users with support for creating, opening and viewing or editing the content of these CFS files. Pismo Technic developed these applications and the CFS file format as programs and standard file encoding and compression specifications meant for reducing the file size and required resources of disk image files.

how to open a .cfs file?

Launch a .cfs file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .cfs file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .cfs files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .cfs file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .cfs file will open the correct application.

Pismo Technic Pismo File Mount Audit Package

Pismo Technic Pismo File Mount Audit Package

Pismo File Mount Audit Package is an application that was developed by Pismo Technic Inc. which aims to provide its users the capability of mounting contents of ISO, ZIP, Compact File Set, Compact ISO, as well as Private Folder files to the user’s file system by means of virtual folders. It contains a CFS reader which gives it users the ability to mount Compact File Set type of files into a read-only folder which in turn will give accessibility to its contents which includes executing of contained applications. It allows its users to create Private Folders which can be used as storage for applications and data files; the Private Folders is secured since there is an encryption involved in the process wherein the user who wants to gain access to the data stored in the said folder will need a password before seeing its contents.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .cfs files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .cfs. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
