What is the .TOAST file extension?
The .TOAST file extension refers to the popular CD and DVD writing application in Mac OSX ? Roxio Toast. This application is the most popular disc writing application for Apple computers running Mac OSX operating systems. .TOAST is equivalent to the .ISO file extension which is among the leading standard disk image formats for Windows Operating systems.
Opening .TOAST file extensions
.TOAST is a proprietary file extension that is exclusively used by Roxio Toast Titanium disk creation application, which is only for Apple MAC OSX operating systems. The software and the file extension are not meant for any other operating system.
Therefore, the most straightforward method to gain access to information stored within a .TOAST file would be to use Roxio Toast Titanium within an Apple Mac OSX environment. The file may be used to write a disk. The contents of the finalized disk would reveal the information saved within the file.
There are instances, however, where a .TOAST file extension can be made to work in a Windows operating system by renaming its .TOAST file extension to .ISO. However, this is not a foolproof and guaranteed method to extract data out of a .TOAST file.
Using Third Party File Handling Utilities
In a Windows environment, it is tough to extract content out of a file that is encoded for an application made using a proprietary program on a different operating system platform ? like Apple Mac OSX. In such cases, third party file management utilities come in handy.
There are various file repair and recovery tools available for Microsoft Windows that scan a file and create a readable version of the file. These programs even create a proxy viewer for the file in case there is no relevant program which can open the file extension. .TOAST and many such common, uncommon and unknown file extensions can be easily dealt with using file helper tools.
