Open SID File

SID format and extension files have various applications listed below.

Steam Game Data Backup File

In this application, a SID extension file is a backup file created by Steam.

Steam is an application used to download and manage Valve video games on desktop computers.

The SID file contains data of games compressed as a backup as a function of Steam, creating these backup copies of the games on DVD or other external media.

SID files are not created by themselves, they are accompanied by SIS files and SIM files, which provide the necessary metadata to restore the data from the game backup.

It is important to note that Steam backups do not include game saves, custom multiplayer maps, and configuration files.

In this case, you must back up and restore those files manually.

In this case, the SID files are images created using Multi-resolution Seamless Image Database (MrSID) compression, which was developed by Extensis to compress large images.

The SID file is commonly used to partition and store large GIS images.
