What is the file sectest.db? Mine is over 6Gb on my 78Gb laptop drive.
What is this file and can it be deleted?
It is listed as opens with: Unknown application.
Summary is blank.
It had not been modified since November 2007 until I started checking on it today.
Thanks for any info!

Not going to be much help
,db is a database file
From what I've read so far, if it's a Microsoft .db file, you can delete it and if it is needed it will rebuild itself
