IDX file extension - Index file
What is idx file? How to open idx files?
File type specification:
File extension idx is traditionally used for index files. Many programs use them, but no unified format exists. Nevertheless, they are generated for the very same purposes - to speed up file or database search. You may find these indexes mainly in database programs, but even some video subtitling programs or media players use them.
These files are usually generated by programs to speed up the searching through large number of files. In most cases if you delete this file, it will be recreated the next time the index process is started again.
Index files usually contain one header record and one or many node records. The header record contains information about the root node, the current file size, the length of the key, index options and signature, and printable ASCII representations of the key1 and FOR expressions. The header record starts at file position zero.
