.myi File Extension

Developer: N/A
File type: Index File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .myi. Files with the file extension .myi can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .myi files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .myi file?

The MYI file extension is known as MySQL MyISAM Index File and is used by MySQL to store indexes for a MyISAM table. MYI stands for MYIndex extension. MySQL database index defines the structure of the table and contains the control mechanism to check integrity of tables. It defines the structure of the table and includes a counter in the header that shows whether or not the table has been closed properly. Table header has to be modified each time the table is opened. It also offers full text indexing as compared to other database and gives exact metadata resulting to simpler calculations. It requires a file descriptor open for each client for the same table data file. Index file descriptors are shared between clients, which sometimes lead to high usage of open files limitation. Files in MYI format can be opened with SQLite and Microsoft SQL Server in Microsoft Windows.

SQLite

SQLite

SQLite is a database management software with the necessary tools to create and manage SQLite databases. It opens and works with memory databases like te sqlite 2.x, sqlite 3.x and REALSQL Server databases. It creates browse tables, views, triggers and indexes and enables records to be inserted, deleted and updated and it supports arbitrary SQL commands. It features a detailed analyzer, foreign key support, a built-in virtual machine analyzer, built-in optimizer and a built-in language reference. It can display JPEG, BMP and TIFF file formats, as well as QuickTime from BLOB records, and it has the ability to open hidden files or hidden bundles under Mac OS X. It saves frequently used SQL and converts SQLite 2 databases to SQLite 3. It has advanced import and export capabilities and it can generate reports using report templates. It has a spreadsheet-like interface and offers quick access to basic functions. The interface contains all of its main features and complicated command line commands are stored inside a simple button. The same interface is used on MacOS X and Windows version with a multiplatform license for multiplatform databases.
Microsoft SQL Server (2008)

Microsoft SQL Server (2008)

SQL Server 2008, formerly codenamed Katmai, was released on August 6, 2008 and goals to make data self organizing, management self-tuning, and self maintaining with the improvement of SQL Server Always On technologies, to give almost-zero downtime. SQL Server 2008 also includes support for structured and semi-structured data, as well as digital media formats for pictures, audio, video and other multimedia data. In present versions, such multimedia data can be saved as BLOBs (binary large objects), but they are generic bit streams. It also natively supports hierarchical data, and includes T-SQL constructs to directly deal with them, without using recursive queries. Basic awareness of multimedia data will permit specialized functions to be performed on them. According to Paul Flessner, senior Vice President, Server Applications, Microsoft Corp., SQL Server 2008 can be a data storage backend for different varieties of data: XML, email, time/calendar, file, document, spatial, etc as well as perform search, query, analysis, sharing, and synchronization across all data types.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .myi files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .myi. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
