.sdz File Extension

Developer: Spring/National Cancer Institute
File type: Spring Content Package/NCI Compressed Database
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .sdz. Files with the file extension .sdz can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .sdz files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .sdz file?

The SDZ file extension is commonly used by games created with Spring. Spring is a real-time strategy game engine that saves game files as a compressed ZIP format but instead of saving under the .ZIP extension, it uses the .SDZ file extension. These files are used for computer artificial intelligence scripts, graphics, maps and other game content. The SDZ files saved as a ZIP format can be accessed by any ZIP decompression utility. Compressed Structure Data Files that utilize .ZIP compression works to reduce the size of the SDF file and consists of a database of NCI Open Database Compounds. These are molecular structure datasets that are being used with cancer research. With the help of a compatible .ZIP decompression program and by renaming the file as an SDF.GZ file extension, the user can now open an SDZ file extension. Programs that can open SDZ files include Apple Archive Utility, Corel WinZip 16 Pro, Smith Micro StuffIt Deluxe version 2010 and 2011 and ConeXware PowerArchiver.

how to open a .sdz file?

a word of warning

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