While using Win98 search for some lost data - a file called user.dat came up.
On viewing it I found an amazing record of activities on my computer - going back I dont know how far?
To others this may be general knowledge - but I would like to know firstly can it be deleted - and anything anyone can tell me about this file?
Thanks, Simon

Do not touch it in any way shape or form! It is part of the registry which is what your PC uses when booting to get the PC going. Do anything weird to it and you will have problems with your machine.
