.ecs File Extension

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

what is a .ecs file?

A Sony Ericsson phone backup file is stored in the ECS format and is affixed with the .ecs extension, and these ECS files are used as backup copies of data stored in a supported mobile phone. A wide variety of Symbian mobile phone models manufactured by Sony Ericsson implement support for these ECS files. This is because the Symbian operating system is integrated with support for compressing and decompressing data in an ECS file. These ECS files can be used in computers running on Microsoft Windows-based systems by replacing the .ecs extension with .zip. Users can then utilize a popular ZIP decompression application to access the data stored in the filestore.dat file, which will be produced upon decompression. The content of this DAT file is an index of the pieces of data stored in the associated DAT file. These ECS files are useful for those who regularly store new data in their Symbian-powered Sony Ericsson phones, especially large files like videos and images, since mobile phone data can be generated as an ECS file for transmission via email to conserve data storage resources of the mobile phone.

a word of warning

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