.dms File Extension

Developer: N/A
File type: Disk Masher Image File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .dms. Files with the file extension .dms can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .dms files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .dms file?

A Disk Masher image file is encoded with compression specifications similar to the standards implemented into Amiga disk images. A Disk Masher image file is stored in the DMS format and is appended with the .dms extension. These DMS files can be created with The functionalities integrated into the Disk Masher software, and the DMS format was initially used for archiving and compressing data in floppy disks as Amiga image files that can be opened in Amiga computers. These DMS files are as of this writing mostly deployed for the development of disk images integrated with support for Amiga emulation applications. An example of an Amiga emulation program is the Amiga Forever software from Cloanto . There is a version of the Amiga Forever software developed for computers running on Mac platforms, and there is also a version for Microsoft Windows-based systems. The MaxUAE software is also implemented with support for opening and viewing the content of these DMS files.

how to open a .dms file?

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .dms 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, .dms. 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.
