IE index.dat

Can I delete the IE index.dat files (I guess there are 2 files since IE7, one: general - one: privacy mode) with CSC?


Where? Privacy window has no index.dat option for n given browsers

Sorry, I misread your post. I thought you were asking if it was safe to delete index.dat. Not sure if CSC can/does delete it though.


There are various tools that can erase the content of index.dat, overwriting with blank characters, but it can’t be manually deleted as long as it is a file used by the operating system.

Thank you for your support.

Hi bosoiua,

We all know the tools and how to delete it manually I guess. The questions is why CSC does not provide such function? I hope this will be added as a feature request. What do you know about it? Is it on schedule or it won’t be. Thanks.

You can add it to the wishlist.
