DSK file extension - ZX Spectrum emulator data

What is dsk file? How to open dsk files?

File type specification:

Emulator file type icon Emulator file type

The dsk file extension is associated with emulators of ZX Spectrum, a family of 8-bit home computers developed by Sinclair Research and popular in the 1980s.

The dsk file perhaps stores floppy disk, or cassette image.

This dsk file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.
