index.dat files on Windows 98
I have been trying to empty the index.dat file and make them unhidden. I've been playing around in DOS following instructions I got on a couple of websites.
But I noticed that even after I emptied the index.dat file. When I looked it up (C:\WINDOWS\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\index.dat) and clicked on Properties it still showed something like 130K+ bytes. Is that normal?
I also tried to make it unhidden. How do I know if I was successful?
On an unrelated topic, I notice that when I go into my internet Favorites folders, it is automatically alphabetizing the contents of each folder instead of showing the most recent one last. How do correct this?
