ChessBase 9 is a popular commercial database program for storing and searching records of games of chess; it runs under Windows. ChessBase uses a proprietary format for storing games, but can also handle games in portable game notation. The proprietary format uses less hard drive space and manages information that is not possible in PGN. The software easily converts files from PGN to ChessBase format, or from ChessBase to PGN.
