What is DBX file?

A .DBX file contains Outlook Express message folder files. A set of DBX files are stored under the “Document and Settings” user directory. Each of the Outlook Express message folders, such as Inbox folder, Sent folder, Draft folder are saved with a .dbx extension. The DBX file also includes a file called Folder.dbx that stores master index created by considering all folders email messages. Further, the DBX files can be copied to other locations to backup the e-mail messages, and the DBX files can be converted to the Outlook .PST format using the DBX to PST Converter program.

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the DBX file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the DBX file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the DBX file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the DBX file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the DBX file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the DBX file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
