Have you encountered a problem with a MD0 file? Don’t you know which program opens a file with this extension? You will find all the information you need about working with a MD0 file here. In the further part of this page we have added a list of programs that should open your MD0 file. It is enough you choose a proper application for your operating system, download and install it.


MD0 files are cache files for the metadata of the file browser of the image processing software Adobe Photoshop. The Photoshop File Manager can be used for image surveys and offers some simple image manipulation options such as rotate. Furthermore, images can be specially marked or sorted.

These changes are only temporary. To save these settings, you can create an MD0 file via 'File -> export cache' in the file browser. In addition to the MD0 file further tb0 (for thumbnails / thumbnails) files are generated. In this way you can save these settings and also the thumbnails are loaded faster.

When these files are placed in the folder containing the related images, the settings are used when viewing the folder in the file browser.

It should be noted that the file browser is now included under the name Adobe Bridge Photoshop CS. Adobe Bridge stores this cache information in files with the suffix bc and bct.

How to open a MD0 file? Advice and guidance

Absolutely most often appearing reason that prevents you from opening the MD0 file is the lack of a proper application to support it in your operating system. It is notably the first thing you need to address. When one of the programs to support a MD0 file from the list is already installed, you can try to rerun the file. The system should display a message asking you to choose a primary application to support MD0 files. At this point we are looking for disk space where the application was installed in and we can link it with a MD0 file. Since then, our operating system will use the selected program to support all MD0 files.

Other issues

Despite the described problem with MD0 there may be many more problems. If the existing operations were not effective, get involved with the following matters:

- verify that the MD0 file is not damaged and that it has been downloaded or copied in whole
- verify that the file has a file extension that has not been intentionally changed (for example, if it do not contain other information than its extension suggests)
- make sure again whether the MD0 file type is linked in the operating system with a proper program
- make sure that the file is not infected with a virus and you have up to date software and drivers.
