Windows 7: .gi extension

.gi extension

hello I have two 2GB files in My Documents with the extension .gi, which I think might stand for global image or similar. I can't open them and want to know what they are so that I can delete them and recover the space if they are not essential. Any ideas please?
I wondered if they might be to do with Acronis backup, or possibly the temporary folder for files burned to DVD - I don't know where to find that in Windows 7 as yet

As you rightly guessed, they are image files. You should be able to open them with any CD/DVD writing software such as ultraiso or roxio or isobuster and check whether you need them. Acronis backup files have .tib extension.
