File type: StuffIt Archive Index File

The SIDX file extension, developed by Smith Micro, is StuffIt Archive Index Files created by the software StuffIt Deluxe. This is a utility used for compression and decompression of files and is made up of a list of reference information about particular files and these are located in a separate file archive. The application enables its user to go through the contents of a specific archive without the hassle of processing or decompressing it first. It is important to know that SIDX files are incapable of storing the files they reference. It only stores the file content information in a separate archive. Smith Micro StuffIt Deluxe version 2011 for Mac operating system and Smith Micro StuffIt version 2010 for Windows operation system is the main program that can open SIDX file extensions.

a word of warning

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .sidx. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
