A file with the DAT file extension is usually a generic data file that stores information specific to the application it refers to. Sometimes you’ll find them by themselves but often they’re with other configuration files like DLL files.No specific program is responsible for creating or using every type of DAT file. A wide variety of applications uses them as references to certain operations in their respective program.
Since most DAT files are tucked away from view in an application’s data folders, you’ll probably see DAT files most often if a video file is being stored this way, or if you’ve received a malformed email attachment with the extension.
If you have some DAT files but can’t play them on media players or edit on video editors, you can take a DAT converter to help you convert the DAT files to popular digital formats. Download the best DAT files converter here: http://www.brorsoft.cn/blu-ray-video-converter-ultimate/
