What is a .SN1 file?

A .SN1 file is a specific type of file known as a Drive Snapshot Backup Continuation 1. This file is part of a series of files created by a program called Drive Snapshot, which is used on Windows computers to help users back up their entire disk drives. When Drive Snapshot creates a backup, it sometimes splits the backup into several smaller parts to manage the size. The .SN1 file contains the second segment of such a split backup.

To use the data stored in a .SN1 file, it must be used together with the first part of the backup, which is saved as a .SNA file. Both files are necessary to fully restore or access the backup data. Without the .SNA file, the .SN1 file alone cannot be used effectively.

To open a .SN1 file, you need to use the Drive Snapshot software, developed by Tom Ehlert. This program is specifically designed to create, manage, and restore these backup files. Once you have Drive Snapshot, you can open the .SN1 file as part of the process to restore a backup or to view the contents of the backed-up disk image.
