File Extension 07

File extension 07 is associated with the old Apple II computers and is commonly known as an Unknown Apple II File. Apple II computers were first introduced to the market in the late 1970s and were preceded by the Apple I released a few years earlier. Apple II provided improvements over Apple I such as an increased number of expansion slots and a color display.

Apple II gained popularity during this time period as a result of the release of its VisiCalc spreadsheet program, which was the first cost effective program for accountants to instantly setup a spreadsheet and perform automatic mathematical calculations. Prior to the inception of VisiCalc, the spreadsheet had to be setup and completed manually, which proved to be a tedious process. Apple II remained in production until the early 1990s.

07 file extensions are associated with the CD-ROM drive for the Golden Orchard Apple II computer, which was one of the later models in the line of Apple II computers. The purpose of the CD-ROM was to offer an array of utilities and games and was considered to have generous storage of more than 700MB. The file extension 07 was one of the files included with the CD-ROM. As 07 files are considered to be antiquated, the files along with other file extensions created by the Apple II CD-ROM have purposes that are uncertain.

How to Open 07 Files

07 files which are created by Apple II CD-ROM are considered to be a NULL file type, which often means that the file is capable of deleting all data associated with it but logs the write operation of the data to the file. Since there are a lot of questions that surround the content in 07 files due to their age, there are a limited number of ways you can try to open the file extension 07.

You can try to open a 07 file using a text editing program such as Notepad or WordPad for Windows, Apple TextEdit for Mac, or gEdit and Nano Editor for Linux. The UNIX operating system typically does not use file extensions, so you may not be able to open a 07 file using a program on this operating system. If a 07 file contains plain text, you may have success reading it with any text editing program.

Another option you can use to open a 07 file is a file reading program. There are a number of file reading applications available as a free download from websites such as CNET and Softpedia. The programs are designed to read a wide variety of file types, including files that have become obsolete and outdated.
