Stored Google search history (appdata)

Post Posted: Sep 09, 14 15:33

I'm looking at Google search history in roaming/appdata/Google/LocalSearchHistry.

Without doing any testing myself, does anyone know in what order each searched keyword is stored in this .w file? I would presume recent search first.

Actually it should be the other way round.

Which OS is this?
Isn't the path \Appdata\Roaming\Google\Local Search History (on Vista and later):
forensicsfromthesausag...rches.html

Searches are appended to the .w file (it is a sort of log file, old first, latest last) AFAIK:
www.question-defense.c...ch-history
