What is a .SNA file?

A .SNA file is a type of backup file used specifically by a program called Drive Snapshot, which operates on Windows computers. This file is crucial because it holds a backup of a computer's drive, either completely or just the initial part of the drive's image. This means if something goes wrong with the computer's drive, like damage or corruption, the .SNA file can be used to restore the drive to its previous state or to recover specific files from an earlier time.

Drive Snapshot might create multiple files for a single backup if the drive's content is too large. In such cases, the main backup is saved as a .SNA file, and additional files are created with extensions like .SN1, .SN2, etc. These additional files are continuation files and are necessary for a complete restoration or retrieval of the drive's data. To effectively use these files, you need both the primary .SNA file and all its associated continuation files.

To open or use a .SNA file, you need to have Drive Snapshot installed on your computer. This program is designed by Tom Ehlert and is known for its simplicity and effectiveness in backing up and restoring Windows drives. Once you have Drive Snapshot, you can load the .SNA file into the program to access the backup, whether to browse its contents, retrieve specific files, or restore the entire drive's contents.
