Opening IMGCACHE files

Did your computer fail to open an IMGCACHE file? We explain what IMGCACHE files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your IMGCACHE files.

What is an IMGCACHE file?

The .imgcache file extension is used for a temporary data file format, which is implemented by certain Web-based applications. These IMGCACHE files are also classified as image files and are generated by these Web-based programs for some websites with image databases. These .imgcache files are also updated by these Web-based applications when certain changes are saved to the image databases of the websites.An IMGCACHE file contains data that is associated with the digital images that are stored in the databases of these Web-based applications. These may include Web server directory locations, links and image properties. These .imgcache files only contain references and do not store the actual digital image files in the database of these websites.These .imgcache files are not meant to be opened manually. These are temporary files that should be left alone, in order for the Web-based programs of these websites with digital image databases to continue working properly.

Software that will open, convert or fix IMGCACHE files

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
