Monitored File Name Extensions

October 19, 2009

When choosing file name extensions for your files, be careful what file extensions you choose.

The System Restore module in Windows monitors a set of known file extensions and automatically backs up those files when they change. If you name one of your data files with an extension that is monitored by System Restore, your file will be archived every time that you write to it, potentially impacting your application’s performance.
