What is an .FLG file?
.FLG is Puppy Linux Partition Flag File
File created by Puppy Linux, an easy-to-use Linux variant; used to mark a certain partition to scan or boot from; referenced during startup and during file system checks; may surface after a bad shutdown of the system; deleted automatically after a successful startup or file system check.
FLG files may appear as FSCK.flg or FSCKME.flg, which are similar to FSCK.me files. These files are accessed by the system and are not meant to be opened manually.Common FLG Filenames
pupdesk.flg - specifies the startup partition when Linux is started using the PUPMODE=5 parameter. It exists only until the desktop boots up and doesn't get created after that. If a hard/forced shut down occurs, the PUPDESK.flg will be rediscovered during the boot-up and and will force the Xorg Wizard to run instead of starting up the desktop again.
File Type 2 IsoPuzzle Flag File
File used by IsoPuzzle, a program used to recover data from scratched or incompletely burned CD and DVD disc images; contains a list of good sectors in a corresponding .ISO file; marks recoverable sectors so that they can be reconstructed into a new disc image.
NOTE: IsoPuzzle does not support Audio CDs, VCDs, or SVCDs.
File Type 3 HP System Recovery Flags File
File used by the HP system recovery application that is pre-installed on some HP computers; saved in the C:\System.sav\Flags\ directory and contains flags that tell the installer which information to use when running program functions.
FLG files are not meant to be opened manually. They are referenced by the HP system recovery software.
