What is an .ORI file?

.ORI is Original File

Often added to a file that already has an extension; may be appended to the filename, i.e. "page1.html" may become "page1.html.ori;" often used to differentiate between original and backup (.BAK) files.

The ".ori" extension may need to be removed in order for the file to open correctly.
