What is a PDB file?

A PDB file is a database file used by several applications, including Pegasus, Quicken, MS Visual Studio, and Palm Pilot software. It stores data in a structured format and is typically installed with the corresponding application.

More Information

NOTE: PDB files used by different programs are usually saved in a proprietary format, meaning they can only be opened by the program they were installed with. For example, an Intuit Quicken PDB file is not recognized by Microsoft Visual Studio.
