After using Internet Explorer, I used to delete the search history from IE. Now I want to restore the deleted history. Is there anyway to restore the history? How to restore it? Please provide me the step-by-step instructions so that I can understand.
Go to C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5
In this Content.IE5 folder, look for the Index.dat file. You can get the history from this file. This file cannot be deleted by the currently logged in user. To view the index.dat file, download the Index.dat Viewer from any one of the below site:
