Hi,
It is some kind of DB file which has extension .a01. But I can't read the file because it's not clear. When I open it in notepad, it displays ASCII (Encrypted Format) only.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The extension .a01 is a primarily associated with archived section.  If you go to filext.com, then click on the letter A, you can scroll down until you see A01 and it will tell you what it is and other information that may be helpful.  Now, just a heads up, I would NOT click on any of the other links there.  The site has become commercialized and I would not trust the links anymore.

Good luck.

    A Web search for [ file extension a01 ] gives plenty of detail. It seems unlikely that the data is "encrypted"; it's probably just encoded as compressed data. -- Tom

    BTW, if you don't know what created a file, you can't be certain about what can process it. Anyone can create a file with a .A01 extension (or almost any extension) and put whatever they want in it. -- Tom

    All you have to do is right-click a file and go to RENAME and give it any extension you want. You will get a message that the file may become unstable, but that does not stop you. for example create a simple .txt file and save it as sample.txt. Now go rename it as sample.xxx . Clicking on the file alone may not open it as expected. Right-Click and select OPEN WITH and pick notepad or word and you will see the data.
