Data Files

 

Aeris Basic stores its data in a series of data files. The files fall into two categories, global data files and practice data files. Data files have the filename extension .tps. Some files with other extensions are present in the data folders but are not considered to be data. That doesn't mean you should delete them or try to edit them in any way. You will not like what happens if you do.
