Hi Zhixiong Pan,

I think the *.db file acts as the database in which all records have been stored, thus all your operation including reading,updating and finding records etc. must associate with this file directly or indirectly,depending on whether you use the cache technology.

Hope this would be helpful.

Hi Zhixiong

Try to look on file using a hexeditor, If you use your specs (Data file fromat section) can easy recongize your elements.

Regards,
Mihai
