Question: What is an STG File?

Have you found, downloaded or received an STG file, but don't know which software program is required to open it?

Before attempting to open an STG file, you'll need to determine what kind of file you are dealing with and whether it is even possible to open or view the file format.

Answer: Files which are given the .STG extension are known as PageKeeper Storage files, however other file types may also use this extension. If you are aware of any additional file formats that use the STG extension, please let us know.

How to open a STG file:

The best way to open an STG file is to simply double-click it and let the default assoisated application open the file. If you are unable to open the file this way, it may be because you do not have the correct application associated with the extension to view or edit the STG file.

This file format was added to our database by a visitor to this site, but no additional information was provided. We have yet to investigate this file type further, or there was not enough information available at the time to report accurately on the format.

Please check back soon for more information as we are constantly updating our file descriptions based on search frequency.

Tip: Try to open the STG file using a text-editor such as Notepad, as many file types contain simply contain unformatted plain-text and can viewed correctly using this method.

I have just downloaded the Spybot and checked my computer. It came up with sever Adware and Spyware items, but also with some STG files. As I am a layperson could someone tell me what these files are for, and whether they are necessary for the operation of my Windows XP sytem?

An STG file (PageKeeper Storage File) is used by Microsoft Active-Sync to store a file backup set from a Laptop PC, PDA (Personal Digital Assistant), Palm Pilot, Smart-Phone, etc.

The STG file is completely harmless in itself as it is merely a single container file that stores multiple files of any type saved as part of a backup process.
