A DB-JOURNAL file is a temporary file that functions as a rollback journal for an SQLite-type database and is created by database administration systems as a means of security, during a transaction between an application and said database.
DB-JOURNAL files are used to restore a database in case the application crashes, hangs or there is a communication break when executing a transaction.
DB-JOURNAL files enable the feature of logging all changes to a database that can be made in a transaction.
As mentioned above, DB-JOURNAL files are temporary and should only exist when a running transaction occurs in a SQLite database then it is automatically deleted once the transaction is complete.
The file is in the same directory as the original database file, bearing the same name as the associated DB file, except that it includes the '-JOURNAL' appendix.
