.umb - MemMaker Configuration Backup File
The UMB configuration files are related to MemMaker. UMB file is a MemMaker Configuration Backup File. Starting with MS-DOS 6, Memmaker is a utility that optimizes memory by determining the best order to load TSRs and drivers in the upper memory area (UMA). MemMaker changes the Windows SYSTEM.INI file only if you are running Windows 3.0, and only if certain options are selected prior to memory optimization. If MemMaker does change the file, it saves the original file as SYSTEM.UMB.
Naturally, other applications may also use the .umb file extension. Even harmful programs can create .umb files. Be especially cautious with .umb files coming from an unknown source!
Can't open a .umb file?
When you double-click a file to open it, Windows examines the filename extension. If Windows recognizes the filename extension, it opens the file in the program that is associated with that filename extension. When Windows does not recognize a filename extension, you receive the following message:
Windows can't open this file:
To open this file, Windows needs to know what program you want to use to open it. Windows can go online to look it up automatically, or you can manually select one from a list of programs that are installed on your computer.
To avoid this error, you need to set the file association correctly.
- Open Control Panel > Control Panel Home > Default Programs > Set Associations.
- Select a file type in the list and click Change Program.
