File type specification:

lgl file icon: lgl filetype icon

The lgl file extension is used by Microsoft Windows for generated application logs.

In Windows 98 and Windows Me, the Task Monitor tracks which programs are launched and how they load from disk, and it records the info in the Applog folder.

The Defrag utility then uses this info to provide special optimization for the program files you use most often. Rather than rearranging the clusters of these files in sequential order, Defrag rearranges them in the order they're loaded when the program launches.

This lgl file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete.

How to convert file with extension LGL:

This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
