I have a backup program that notifies me whenever it backs up a file. Recently it has been saying that it backed up *.sglite. I cannot find, in Win7 using search programs, any sglite files. What is going on?

I have never heard of that extension before, did you mean sqlite. If so those files are usually related to database files.

Maybe it is a hidden file and if so then you can view hidden files by ticking 'show hidden files' from the folder option box

I think you're reading the "g" wrong. It's really a "q" (as in queen). The file type is for SQL Lite, a database product. Regards, Joe

You are right, I meant sqlite. I did not think I had any sql databases ( have an access one) on the computer but some program might have created one. I will look.

Yes, many programs use SQLite. For example, the Firefox browser stores all of the bookmarks and browsing history in a file called <places.sqlite>. If you want to learn more about SQLite, look here:
