What is the .OVD File Extension?

.OVD File Extension Description:

the OverDisk program uses the file extension OVD. Elias Fotinis, an amateur programmer, created the software. OverDisk gives users a graphical presentation of the space used in the hard disk. The graphical representation is color coded to show which types of files is represented by the colors.

The version of the program available for download is unfinished, as the developer himself admits. Development on the program has been lagged, but the programmer mentions intent to integrate it into a group of software tools. OverDisk scans the hard disk to check the distribution of resources between all the files and folders. This is done so that the user can check which files and items take up the most space.

The OVD file extension is attached to a database, which stores disk use history. The program can scan the system to check how the disk is being used. The results of the scan are stored with the .ovd file extension. This is done so that users can track the history of disk use without needing to rescan the disk. Files with the file extension OVD are stored in the system. They can only be read by the OverDisk application.

ObjectVision by the Borland Software Corporation also uses the OVD file extension. The program can be used to support and make databases, develop database applications as well as creating forms, which are used by databases. Files with the .ovd file extension contain data created and saved by the program. Files with the file extension OVD are used to build forms, databases and database tools.

ObjectVision comes with its own programming language based on forms. It was developed precisely for Microsoft's operating systems Windows 3.0 and 3.1. ObjectVision can be used to create databases in formats that can be read by dBase, Paradox and other database management software. A filter to be used with these databases can also be created by using the forms tool of the program.
