Am using current Spybot 1.3 with Win 98 SE.
I never realized I should occasionally do "Purge Selected Files" and have a ton of items there, going back years.
When I check them off and hit "Purge Selected Items", nothing happens and Ctrl/Alt/Delete says "Spybot Not Reponding".
Is there a folder I can go to that contains these backup materials so that I can eliminate them and thus start with a normal-type Recovery/Purge Selected items functionality?
If you are having problems where Spybot - S&D crashes when you try to purge the backed up items in the Recovery section you can use this method to purge those backups:
Spybot - S&D stores its backups of the items it fixed in a directory on your hard drive.
This directory for NT, 2000, or XP is:
C:\documents and settings\All Users\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy
The direcotry for 95, 98 and ME (Not positive on me):
C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy
Under that directory you will see a Recovery directory. You can delete the backed up items that Spybot - S&D fixed by removing them from this directory. Clicking on the recovery button in Spybot will not reflect these changes until you restart the program.
