History search?

Is there any way to do a complete history search on your computer? I know how to do a search but you are able to delete pages. I want to know if there is a way to check an unedited search. Thanks!

  • While data can't always be truly deleted, if someone did regular maintenance ~ such as clean disk and defragmented ~ you may not be able to retrieve all the bits of deleted data. Once you defragment and compress your file system, new data is then written over old deleted file space. It would take a person with advanced programing to be able dig that deep, especially on a Windows machine.
