SuperFetch_Tools contains two tools designed to investigate the information that SuperFatch stores in its database files. These investigative tools do not yet fully know the format of these files, as Microsoft does not document the format. However, these tools represent the best effort to date to extract information about them.

This release consists of two tools:

  • SuperFetchList is a command line tool that dumps out the contents of a DB (scenario) file.  This tool remains at version 1.0 and works with Vista and Windows 7.
  • SuperFetchTree is a GUI that organizes file details from all of the DB files. This tool is at version 2.0, and support has been added to support Windows 8 through 10.
