What are .001 file types?

Due to a recent disaster at work, I'm re-building a PC that suffered a catastrophic hard drive failure. The problem I have is that I need to rebuild the MS Access database that was running on it. The database had been backed up to five floppy disks by someone else and I don't know what software they've used. All I can tell you is that the files created have the extension .001 - Any one out there know these are or what software might have been used to generate them??? (I've tried both 95 / NT backup programs to no effect)

Sleep? Who need it??? zzzZZZZzzzZZZzzz

More about what file types
  1. Problem solved, .001 files are used by the ms-dos restore program. Doh! Should really engage brain b4 posting stupid requests for info!

  2. .001's can also be compressed files.

    Intel inside, AMD outside.
  3. Yes they can, for example if you use winace to split files, they will be caled <i>file</i>.001, <i>file</i>.002 etc

    Next time you wave - use all your fingers
  4. WinRAR also uses .001, .002, etc.

  5. Also, I think when ScanDisk finds problem files (like cross-linked), and you select "Save", it saves them with those extensions. I could be remembering wrong.

    Whoever thinks up a good sig for me gets a prize :wink:
