Purging History
Feb 8th, 2018 at 1:50pm

Is it possible to purge the history? I have tried just renaming the history.db in the hopes that it would create a new empty one, but instead it just fails to start any tasks...

Hello Richard,

You can do this to get a fresh database.
Make sure the task is stopped
Select the menu "Tools -> Explore Task Directory", this opens Windows Explorer, typically inside C:\ProgramData\WatchDirectory
Navigate to the subdirectory with the same name as your task
delete all files that have names starting with "history"
unzip this empty history.db:
