FDB files

FDB is the standard suffix used for Firebird database file names. It is derived from the InterBase standard, .GDB.

This is not compulsory, in fact an Firebird or InterBase database may be named with any suffix. This standardization does however provide a certain conformity, of particular importance if a database is to be administrated long term by numerous people.
