Information about the .chk (chk) file type

Below is all the information we have available on file about the .chk (chk) file type.

.chk
ESE Checkpoint file.

A .chk file is a checkpoint file used by the Extensible Storage Engine (ESE). The Extensible Storage Engine is a database format used by a number of Microsoft applications.

Checkpoint files might sometimes be given the file extension of .jcp instead of .chk. See .jcp for further information on ESE checkpoint files.

Where this is available we would like to include file format information on .chk files, as well as information on how to view or open files of type .chk. If you know of any information which we have missed then please let us know.
