Open INP File

The INP extension is currently used for various applications, some of which we will see below:

Dell Laptop Backup Files

In this case, the INP extension is mostly found in association with user data backup files that are created by one of Dell's proprietary backup utilities, specifically, on Dell branded laptops.

INP backups come with two XML files, one named include.xml and the other migr.xml, which are backup control files and are generally needed to restore data from a backup.

INP backup files can be processed and restored by various Dell proprietary tools such as Migration Restore Utility, Dell Backup and Recovery, Recovery Media, etc.

InPage Document

In this section, the INP extension is associated with the InPage Document file format and type, that's where the INP acronym comes from.

About InPage

Developed since 1994 by Concept Software, InPage is a word processing solution, becoming a de facto standard, for publishing in languages ??that use the Nastaliq/Naskh calligraphic script, such as Urdu, Arabic, Persian, Pashto, etc.

The latest version of InPage supports Unicode and adds many Unicode fonts.

That said, an INP file is an InPage document in proprietary binary format, and InPage document files cannot be opened by any other application.


The INP extension also denotes the Abaqus input file format used with the Abaqus software package, an advanced commercial tool for realistic simulation of routine to complex engineering problems.

More about Abaqus

Abaqus is a software suite for finite element analysis and computer-aided engineering, originally released in 1978, and is part of the Dassault Systemes (3ds) integrated Abaqus Unified FEA package.

INP is a text-based format, and Abaqus uses these files to store input data for Abaqus simulation/visualization projects.

Sony Camcorders

In this particular case, INP files are designed specifically for Sony digital video camera devices.

The INP extension is assigned to one of three image management files stored in the AVF_INFO directory on the camera storage medium.

It should be noted that the picture management files are not actual recordings, but rather extended metadata files in Sony's proprietary format, which are not intended to be opened or used by the user.

MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator)

This aforementioned emulator uses the INP extension to denote its proprietary MAME Action Replay file format.

MAME, is a popular open source game emulator project that allows you to record the gameplay, creating a game playback file, in this case with INP extension, to be played later or shared as a demo.
