ADF file extension - Amiga disk file

What is adf file? How to open adf files?

The adf file extension is used for Amiga Disk file format used by Amiga computers and emulators to store images of disks.

Before it was known as ADF, it was used in commercial game production, backup and disk virtualization. Technically speaking, ADF is not really a file format but actually a track-by-track dump of the disk data as read by the Amiga operating system, and so the format is really fixed-width AmigaDOS data tracks appended one after another and held in a file.

ADF is the open source Amiga floppy disk image format introduced with the first emulation applications. It is not compressed by itself, and supports very few copy protection schemes. Games in ADF format are usually "cracked" variants which had their copy protection removed. ADF is a simple and robust format that is widely supported, and can be compressed well by the file system.
