.uds File Extension

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

what is a .uds file?

A Sierra Generations file is used by a program developed to provide users with a set of functionalities useful in storing family tree details in a database, and the content of these Sierra Generations files may include names of family tree members, ancestral information, descendant details and dates among other pieces of text data. The content of a Sierra Generations file may also consist of visualized charts and tables that can outline these family tree details in more organized and manageable ways. These Sierra Generations files are also implemented with text and XML-based data formatting standards, while data compilation and encoding specifications proprietary to Sierra, developer of the Sierra Generations program, are also integrated into the content of these Sierra Generations files so the Sierra Generations application can save these Sierra Generations files in the UDS format. Affixed with the .uds extension, these Sierra Generations files can be exported into different file formats using TWR Computing services, since further development and support for the Sierra Generations application has already been discontinued as of this writing.

how to open a .uds file?

Launch a .uds 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 .uds file will open it.

a word of warning

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