.IDX files

  Halmer 19:20 14 Aug 2008

I seem to have thousands (and growing) of files ending in .IDX in my My Documents folder on my Vista laptop.

Does anyone know what these are please? They are all 1kb in size.

Do their 'Properties' give any indication as to the program that's creating them? They are probably "index" files of some sort.

Those are the indexing/database files that nero creates when you burn to a CD. They can be deleted. They store info on what was burned onto the CD but aren't necessary to keep.
