File extension .DB – What kind of database is it exactly?


Marco Pontello’s TrID is a great way to determine the type of any file.

TrID is simple to use. Just run TrID and point it to the file to be analyzed. The file will be read and compared with the definitions in the database. Results are presented in order of highest probability.

Just download the executable and the latest definitions file into the same directory and then run TrID:

trid.exe "path/to/"

It will output a list of possible file types for the file with a confidence rating. Here’s a screenshot of using TrID to analyze a SQLite database file:

There’s also a GUI version called TrIDNet:
