DAT File Question #ancestrycom #treeshare #database

I found some discrepancies in RootsMagic and posted a question. This was in an answer:
C:UsersTomAppDataRoamingRootsMagicAMT (change the “Tom ” to the Windows username. In this folder is a .DAT file for each connected Ancestry Member Tree (AMT). This file is a SQLite database containing tables named identically to a subset of the TreeShared RM database file.
Is there any data description documentation on that file? Or any documentation on its purpose in life and what it does.

Nothing published. Your description is accurate. We surmise that it is created by TreeShare, contains relationships between RM items and Ancestry items that are sync’d. It might be an intermediate file that TreeShare creates before transmitting changes in one or the other directions.
