MDI MDI (Image)

File extension .mdi
Category Image File
Description The Microsoft Document Imaging was originally released with Microsoft Office XP and was included in both Office 2003 and Office 2007 - it has since been discontinued. The format was developed to allow users to scan documents, then OCR (optical character recognition) those documents, view them and if needed annotate them. MDI or MODI as it is otherwise known is an extension of the TIFF file format.
Actions
Technical Details MDI or MODI is a proprietary format which stores scanned documents and can include annotations and/or metadata. MDI files are limited in their nature in that they can only be produced or read by MODI applications or applications that invoke MODI modules. MDI files are an extension of the TIFF file format, however their are a number of differences - with MDI files, three image compression formats are used, a number of individual tag values and a magic number of 0x5045 instead of 0x4D4D.

DOCX DOCX (Document)

File extension .docx
Category Document File
Description DOCX was introduced with Microsoft Word 2007, it's based on open XML and uses ZIP compression for smaller file sizes. The benefit of having open XML is that it is able to be read by applications, platforms and Internet Platforms. However to open it using any Microsoft Word that predated 2007 would require DOCX to be converted into a normal doc format.
Actions
Technical Details DOCX improves file and data management and data recovery. DOCX extends what is possible with the binary files of earlier versions. Any application that supports XML can access and work with data in the new file format. The application does not need to be a Microsoft product it can be any application. Users can also use standard transformations to extract or repurpose the data. In addition, security concerns are drastically reduced because the information is stored in XML, which is essentially plain text. Thus, the data can pass through corporate firewalls without hindrance.
