Description:

Index.dat Suite is a rather unique program that allows you not only to
delete the index.dat files, temporary internet files, temp files, cookies
and history, but it also allows you to view the index.dat files on your
system.

Index.dat Suite's current features include;

.: View and delete index.dat files
.: View and delete Temporary Internet Files (TIF)
.: View and delete Cookies
.: View and delete History
.: View and delete Temp files
.: View and delete Recent Documents

.: Auto-generation of batch file to assist in deleting the index.dat files
in DOS.

Updates:

Added: /q (quiet) switch to custom folders (NT systems and above)
Added: "View using vURL" to View History/View file contents context menu's

Fixed: "Sort by size" does not work correctly on main IDFinder window

Misc: Other minor bug fixes/modifications

Known Issues:

Stop does not always stop when running multi-drive scan

- I'm not quite sure whats causing this at present as I've checked
everything is as it should be and can't see anything wrong. I'll
keep working on this and see if I can sort it out.

Updater always says Read Me, EULA and/or Documentation have been updated
when they have not.

- This is a known issue and unfortunately, I've not yet found a solution.
However, unless there is a new version of IDS itself, it is unlikely
these
will have been updated and thus, they can simply be ignored.

Updates planned:

****************************
Additions
****************************

Add: Network/RAM drive support

- Unfortunately I do not have either of these at present, so
would rather not add the functionality until I can thoroughly check
it myself.

Get a hold of a Linux or BSD LiveCD, read the manual page for dd and then use
dd to wipe the hard drive(s) clean. Then reinstall Windows and any software
that you wish and give the box away.
