    I routinely go and empty out my browser history, cache, temp file, run disk
    cleanup, etc., but I understand that the files aren't actually getting
    deleted. I also heard that the same is true for Outlook emails that have
    been deleted and newsgroup emails. I was curious about this because I've
    noticed my hard drive space increasing at a faster rate than I would have
    anticipated. Is it true that .dat files can be a cause of this and that the
    files deleted from browser history, cache, temp, etc. can be deleted
    properly from within the DOS shell? Is this true? I was looking for any
    online articles or a better way to clean out all of these types of files.
    Any suggestions? Thanks.
