    I got curious about the supporting file system of qtp. I have done some googling about this. I found some beautiful results regarding this. I am sharing the content without changing..

    This is as per Rama
    TestName> Folder
    — default.cfg – MDRV configuration file; it is needed only for LoadRunner/BAC execution, not for QTP
    — default.usp – MDRV run-logic; it is needed only for LoadRunner/BAC execution, not for QTP
    .usr – Main storage for MDRV execution; it is needed only for LoadRunner/BAC execution, not for QTP
    — Default.xls – Default DataTable
    — lock.lck – Test lock file (removed when Test is closed)
    — Parameters.mtr – Parameterization information
    — Test.tsp – Main document storage (settings) of the Test

    — Action Folder
    ||– ObjectRepository.bdb – The Local Action repository DB file
    — Resource.mtr – Main document storage of the Action
    — Script.mts – Action script
    — SnapShots Folder – Contains Active Screen snapshot files
    The following files, if they exist, are obsolete and not created by QuickTest Professional (QTP) 9.x. If you see them, the test was probably originally created by an older version of QTP:
    default.prm – MDRV DataTable. In QTP 8.2 the Data Table was duplicated in this file for MDRV. It is not needed for QTP operation.
    thick_usr.dat and thin_usr.dat – These files are obsolete. They were included from the Astra LoadTest product and were used by MDRV only. They are not needed for QTP.
    The following table provides a description, the type, and comments regarding the files that make up a QuickTest Professional test.
    File Name Description Type Comments Regarding File
    Test.tsp Test settings Binary Do not edit
    Default.xls Data table parameters Excel similar Can be edited using Excel
    Parameters.mtr Parameterization information Binary Do not edit
    Action Action folder (See other table)
    Default.cfg Load test configuration file Text Do not edit
    Default.prm Load test configuration file Text Do not edit
    Default.usp Load test configuration file Text Do not edit
    .usr Load test configuration file Text Do not edit
    Thick_usr.dat Load test configuration file Text Do not edit
    Thin_usr.dat Load test configuration file Text Do not edit
    Files within Action folder:
    File Name Description Type Comments Regarding File
    Script.mts Action script Text Edit text preceding the @@ sign only
    Resource.mtr Object Repository Binary Do not edit
    Snapshots Active screen files Folder Do not edit
