XML file format information

Full NameExtensible Markup Language
Mime Typeapplication/xml

An XML (Extensible Markup Language) file is a text-based data format used to store and transport structured information between different systems and platforms. It consists of plain text, and its structure is defined by tags enclosed in angle brackets. These tags act as markers to identify elements and define the hierarchical organization of the data. XML files are versatile and widely used for data exchange and storage due to their human-readable format and platform independence.

Each XML file contains a root element that serves as the starting point for the hierarchical structure. Within this root element, other elements can be nested, forming a tree-like representation of the data. Elements can have attributes, which are additional pieces of information that provide more details about the element. The content between the opening and closing tags of an element holds the actual data.

XML is commonly used in various applications, including web development, configuration files, data interchange between different programming languages, and communication between software systems. It allows developers to define custom tags and structures tailored to their specific needs, making it highly adaptable and useful for a wide range of data management tasks.

Repairing a XML File

XML File Header Data

XML files contain a sequence of unique bytes at the beginning of the file. This header section is usually followed by the main XML file section. Where the header block is present, our document repair tool will parse the header data to validate the file type and also provide additional metadata that describes key characteristics of the document uploaded.
