Thanks but im trying to open a dat file thats one gig and notepad says its to big
get a Notepad replacement like EditPad, which can open any size file, any number of files and is just a whole lot smarter than Notepad.
Just out of curiosity.. What do you expect to do with a gigabyte of data open in a text editor?
To do anything sensible with such an amount of data you need some sort of scripts and tools, not a plain editor.
Well, file extensions can be changed, but if I guess from the file size, I'd say it's a VideoCD or SVCD. There are a lot of tools for those, for example here.
My first advise pertained to the IE index.dat files.
The second for general files.
What sort of .dat file is that 1GB file?
