.ndif File Extension

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

what is a .ndif file?

The NDIF file extension is known as the Apple New Disk Image Format File, which is the disk image saved in Apple's New Disk Image Format (NDIF), as of this writing. It compresses data in a dual-fork format, which consists of metadata in the resource fork and data in the data fork. Resource fork contains metadata about archived files and data fork contains archived data. It was used as an older format for mounting file systems on Mac computers. Images can be mounted to the Desktop and then run or installed from the Desktop. When Mac OS X was released, NDIF files were replaced with UDIF files for single fork format data storage and to be transferrable to other application across platforms. However, they can still be opened using the Disk Utility program application enclosed as part of the Mac OS X operating system. They are also compatible with System 7 and Mac OS 8–9. When NDIF files are being transferred, they are limited to 2 GB of logical size.

how to open a .ndif file?

Launch a .ndif 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 .ndif 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 .ndif files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .ndif file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .ndif file will open the correct application.

Mac OS X

Mac OS X

Mac OS X is an Apple product, which is a series of operating systems that is based on Unix, developed exclusively for Macintosh computers and tablets. These include MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, Mac Pro, Mac Mini, Xserve, and iMac. However, some Microsoft applications, such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Exchange Server, work with this operating system. In fact, it enables file sharing from Windows OS powered PCs to OS X computers. Generally, like other operating systems, Mac OS X is designed with friendly-user, graphical interface in which users are able to operate different tasks displayed on the desktop or from the main menu. Different applications are integrated for various uses and tasks, including typing, Web browsing, launching media player, and other typical activities a person can do with a computer. This OS can open a list of file formats from Microsoft offices (.doc,) to PDF (.pdf), photos (.jpg, .png, .gif) to audios or videos (.wav, .mpeg, .mp3) and others. It is also compatible with a variety of standard devices and peripherals like printers, scanners, cameras (webcam and digital cameras).

a word of warning

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