Gen Original File
When files are updated it is often a good idea to have a backup of the original file in case of any problems.
The extension .orig is used by various programs and as such can be classed as generic.
Usually the original file name is used with the extension.orig added for the backed up file.
An example of this is Filefacts.exe
The updated version would have the name of the original in this case Filefacts.exe and the original Filefacts.exe.orig.
