Help Desk

The HDF Help Desk provides basic email consulting on The HDF Group's software, free of charge to the HDF community. We make our best effort to respond to e-mailed community member inquiries within one business week.

Email support is available Monday through Friday from 8:00AM through 4:00PM CT.

The HDF Help Desk is closed on all U.S. federal holidays.

Problem Reporting

Any discovered bugs or encountered issues can be submitted to the help desk and they will be added to our problem tracking database and scheduled for investigation by our engineers.

Advanced Support

We offer a number of different support services packages that include higher levels of help desk support, including phone support, improved response time, and support for a larger ecosystem of HDF tools beyond the C, C++, Fortran, and Java language bindings.
