  1. .tds and .tdsx are just the datasources.
    For .tds which is Tableau data source file, it only stores file path, it is not containing any data with it.
    But with .tdsx you will get data and you do not need your datasource file.

  2. .tds
    Data source files contains the file path that are shortcuts for quickly connecting to data sources that you use often, and its does not contain any data.

    .tdsx
    The .tdsx is a zip file that contains the data source file (.tds), Excel files, Access files, by using this format you can create a single file that you can share with others who may not have access to the original data.
