    Hi all,

    I wanted to check the history of a folder in windows explorer (not IE), I downloaded a index.dat viewer but it only shows a few days history I need it from last week. I only found out about index.dat from a google search I am no expert, it does show the history of the folder I am looking for but not far back enough, I do use Ccleaner to delete files, but how can I recover the old history wirh free software please!

    Thanks

    Chances are that you can't. But what exactly do you want to recover? Files, a list of files, or what?

    Ccleaner removes many things that can be useful for recoveries. Backup files, though useless if unused, of course, are created for a reason. Ccleaner should be used sparingly, if at all, and never use the registry part.

    Hi,
    I just wanted to look at the history of a folder in windows explorer such as what files were copied to it etc, like the history tab. I do use Ccleaner so it may be lost.
    Thanks
