Thanks to years of research and help from our loyal visitors, we now have one of the world’s largest and most detailed databases of file extension information, covering multiple operating systems from Microsoft’s Windows, Apple’s OS X and all variations of Unix to those used on the latest mobile devices and phones.

This table of file signatures (aka “magic numbers”) is a continuing work-in-progress. I had found little information on this in a single place, with the exception of the table in Forensic Computing: A Practitioner’s Guide by T. Sammes & B.
