Although you can store any document in FileHound for safe keeping and download them to view and use them, the following file types are supported for previewing and opening within FileHound.

These file types can be uploaded via any means, either by the user using the Upload button, or via Scanning, Drop Folder Service or Import Utility.


If you have a file type that is not documented here then please get in contact with your FileHound Sales Account Representative and inform them of your requirement as we may be able to update our supported file format library for you.
