File Extension NFO

.NFO File

File extension: NFO
File type: Infobase


Notes about the NFO file extension:



Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The NFO file type is primarily associated with 'Folio' by Fast Search & Transfer (FAST). Folio produced Infobase documents starting back in the days of MS-DOS. These documents became popular in government circles and were often passed out at trade shows along with a viewer. Folio, the company, no longer exists and NextPage has taken over their assets. In 2003 NextPage issued a press release saying they released a Folio-to-XML conversion program. However, the bottom of their home page indicates that they sold Folio to FAST. FILExt found no NFO tools on the FAST site.
