What is an .K13 file?
.K13 file extension is created by The Database Managers, Inc.. .K13 has been classified as Database Files.
.K13 is DataFlex index
The k13 file extension is associated with Dataflex and used for index files.
In DataFlex 2.x, the k13 index was always a 'batch' index, which means its contents were not updated when the datafile was updated. Batch indexes are only updated when the index is (re)created with dfindex or dfsort, depending on which version of DataFlex you have. This provided some advantages in certain situations, but most of those advantages have become obsolete with the faster computers and larger hard drives we enjoy today.
Depending on your backup medium, it can be faster to simply reindex a datafile versus restoring the file from the backup medium.
.K13 file format is deprecated and this file format is no longer supported.
Currently, .K13 file type is not actively used and is obsolete. This usually happens with system files in older operating systems, files from long-discontinued software, or with previous versions of some file types (documents, projects, images, etc.) that were replaced in later versions of the original programs.
