File type: Debugging File

About the TRACE file type:

Invalid file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your Windows PC. It is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other slowdown issues.

These files are generally used as special log files which are produced automatically by a program. These files usually contain debugging related information that would help the developer debug the application in case of any problems so that it is easier for the developer to pin point the source of the problems. Typically these files are standard ASCII text based files which can be opened or edited using any standard text editor. TCPDump is a utility in UNIX which is now also available for the Windows environment which is basically a utility that sniffs the network connection for all outgoing and inbound traffic and reports it to the user in a user friendly readable manner. It can also be used to log this information in a file and these are generally TRACE files. TRACE files are used by several applications and softwares and are used for various purposes including error logging, debugging information logging, or even simple event logging which can be referred to at a later time for reference.
