File type recognition software

Sometimes we may find a file on the computer that its contents are unknown, or we may know its apparent type by looking at it extension but we suspect it because it was obtained by unofficial methods, so a program is needed to check the file contents and detect its actual type.

How the program works

The program's purpose is to help you know the file type, by examining the file in depth and analyzing its content, and then displaying the result of the analysis to show the actual components of the file.

Installing the program on Windows

When you download the program, you will find it as a 7z archive file. In order to open it you will need to get WinRAR or 7-zip installed on your system.

The TrIDNet program itself does not need to be installed on the system, as it can be launched directly after extracting the program files in the 7z file.

A simple user interface

TrIDNet interface is only one window, with only one purpose, which is to analyze the files in the computer, and this makes dealing with the program very simple.

The definitions database 

The database consists of many files and folders that contain information and definitions on all types of files.

Before using the program, it must first be linked with the database, which it needs to analyze the files.

Choose the database folder

The database is located in the folder "defs"among the program's files.

the database folder "defs" and the TrIDNet.exe file must be located in the same folder, or you can specify the database folder manually if it was in another folder.

Database update

The program database is continuously updated.

The up to date database can be obtained from the TrID's website, and the data is updated by replacing the old folder with the new folder only.

Analyze files content

The program can analyze the type of files based on their contents, this helps in situations that require knowing the actual file type when dealing with files with unknown sources or extensions.

TrIDNet is distinguished by its great speed in scanning and giving a clear result. 

Analyze all types of files

The program can analyze one file at a time, and you can add any file by dragging and droping it to the program interface directly, or by choosing it from the program interface file browser.

 Preview the result of the file analysis

The result of the file analysis appears in a simple datagrid, which includes several information about the file contents such as the extension, type, the degree of match, etc. The greater the degree of match shows the type of file more.

Additional information

When you double-click on any row in the datagrid, another window will appear showing information related to the file type, such as the name of the actual file extension and information about the extension on Wikipedia.
