.xdb File Extension

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

what is a .xdb file?

Files with the .xdb extension are used as Symantec Virus Database Files and PowerDesigner Database Definition Files. As Symantec Virus Database Files, .xdb files are actually virus database files mostly used by the anti-virus software created by Symantec. These files play a lot when it comes to distributing virus definition on the net especially with the discovery of new viruses. A Symantec Antivirus server usually downloads .xdb files so that they can be distributed as .vdb files to client programs. Applications such as Symantec EndPoint Protection 12 and Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition can be used to open these files. This file extension is also associated with the PowerDesigner database and used as files that contain data such as definition and custom files. These files allow the said program to be opened correctly. The Sybase PowerDesigner application can be used to open these files. Other applications associated with the file extension are HyperCD, Norton Anti-virus and Xtext.

how to open a .xdb file?

Launch a .xdb file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .xdb file will open it.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .xdb 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, .xdb. 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.
