    Hi,
    when I download the last Database file from the last back up, the file is just file type "File" so I am wondering what SQL software will allow me to review the entries in the database file? I would like to review it first before deciding to restore the database.
    Thank you

    Hi,

    It's a sql.gz file, which indicates an SQL file compressed with Gzip compression. There are many tools which can decompress gzip compression; one is http://7-zip.org/.

    Best wishes,
    David
