DB- files may be generated by the Nprotect process that runs as part of Norton Utilities' Recycle Bin protection. They are used by the Norton Unerase program when recovering files that have been deleted, but not permanently erased. Over time, many DB- files may show up in the C:\recycler\NPROTECT\ directory and can be removed if Recycle Bin protection is not needed.
