I have a file named
SYSTAG.BIN in my operating system root folder - what is it? is it safe to delete it?
(couldn't find info about it on google)
The file SYSTAG.BIN is created by AOEMEI Backupper, a free backup tool for Windows. I had installed "AOMEI Backupper Standard Edition 2.0.2" recently and noticed this file created. This file appears to be used to uniquely tag a system for its System Backup functionality.
An additional 2 bytes were non-zero at 0x209 and 0x20A (assumption of bytes due to alignment).
The file size was 0x400 bytes.
It is highly unlikely that the readers copy of this file will match, as each file is a uniquely system tag as the filename would indicate.
As this was a top entry for the search string "SYSTAG.BIN". I hope this comes in useful to someone!
