    I found some info in german.

    It mentions: installed a Sync-Tool for "Windows Mobile", XTNDconnect and sybase, does that mean anything to you?

    They would be log files.

    Normally they are Error Log files related to:
    • ADT = AdvantageTable
    • ADI = Advantage Index
    • ADM = Advantage Memos
    Use ARC to read the log, open the ADS_ERR.ADT table

    Also found these files on my computer.
    Just opened "ads_err.adt" and found strings like;
    C:\Users\<MyUserName>\AppData\Local\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Desktop\XCPCSync.OEM\SyncSDK.209.601\Data\TransContract.adiI
    So in my case it was the Blackberry sync software from RIM (Research In Motion) that left those files.

    Deleted all RIM software recently anyway for obvious reasons... no more BB for me... :blowup:
