I regularly use CCleaner (on GANDALF's recommendation in this forum) and I'm very happy with it.

However, I've never ticked the box to clean/remove Index.dat files (because I'm not sure what the consequences may be!).

Can I safely delete all my Index.dat files?

Yes, no problem. They continue to build up as you use your computer but there is no harm in removing them.

Thanks a lot. Appropriate box in CCleaner now ticked!
