What is a .BWS file?

The .BWS file extension stands for a BlindWrite Sub Code File. This type of file is an additional file that is created when using BlindRead or BlindWrite software, which are programs designed to copy and create disc images. A .BWS file contains important supplementary information known as sub codes or sub channel data. These sub codes are related to a specific disc image and include details that help in accurately copying or writing the disc's data.

Typically, a .BWS file is saved along with two other files: a .BWI file, which contains the disc image itself, and a .BWT file, which holds the disc image's description and track information. Together, these files ensure a complete and accurate copy of the original disc.

To open a .BWS file, you need to use the VSO Software BlindWrite program. This software is specifically designed to handle .BWS files along with .BWI and .BWT files, allowing users to manage and work with disc images effectively.
