Deleting X2 History (Paths, Filters, Search Terms, etc.)

Post by UltraUser » 2015 Feb 28, 09:55

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to delete my x2 history, e.g. paths, search terms, filters, etc. x2 keeps this info in the Windows registry. It is not a straight-forward process to delete it.

I found that this registry script works for me. I offer it with the following instructions and disclaimers:

1) Use the script at your own risk, and only if you know what you are doing. Modifying the Window registry always carries a risk.

2) Back-up your Windows registry first.

3) The script only deletes the history for the Current User.

4) The script must be run as an administrator.

5) Create a text file with a ".reg" extension, for example, "WipeXplorer2History.reg".

6) Copy the following lines of text into the text file.

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ZabaraKatranemia Plc\xplorer2_UC\MainFrame Settings\Folder History]

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ZabaraKatranemia Plc\xplorer2_UC\History\Searched folders]

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ZabaraKatranemia Plc\xplorer2_UC\History\Text searches]

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ZabaraKatranemia Plc\xplorer2_UC\History\Filters]

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ZabaraKatranemia Plc\xplorer2_UC\last filter]
7) Close x2 or it will restore the history that you are trying to delete.

8) Pray to local deity.

9) Execute the reg file.

Best of luck.
