Information about the .edb (edb) file type

This is one of five possibilities that we have on file for the .edb file extension, follow this link to view all five possibilities.

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

.edb
Windows Update data store file. File used by Microsoft Window "Windows Update".

The file typically used by Windows Update is:

C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\DataStore.edb

Windows update can generate some temporary files, typically named similar to:

C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\Logs\tmp.edb

but be aware that there may be other files in that folder which are not temporary files.

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