The icmm is only a "label". All the data is in the randomly numbered folder below it. You create an icmt if you need to transfer data. See details in Help, and be careful!!!!

As Kristian mentions the .icmm file identifies the master database folder with the GUID ID (not random though).

See the following blog about sending data:- http://blog.innovyze.com/2013/03/15/sending-infoworks-icm-and-cs-data-to-another-user/

Looks pretty random to me, but no doubt you have a cunning plan...............

From the ICM Help Glossary: "A Globally Unique IDentifier, or GUID, is an automatically generated identifier that is guaranteed to be unique across all systems. It is generated using a complex algorithm based on the date and time and the individual computer's network card ID. GUIDs take the form {629810C2-3F6B-11D3-9BF3-00600891B690} and you will see them in a number of places where uniqueness is essential."
