    Is there anyway to delete all history over 6 months old? Ideally this should be a maintenance setting.

    I thought history kept only the last 90 days.

      Perhaps you are right. My history only goes back to 7/11/17. But I may have cleared it on that date. Does anyone know if this is by design?

      I guess so, or maybe a Chromium limitation.

        What do you mean?

        History is stored in History file, what is a database file.

          From the initial post:

          "Is there anyway to delete all history over 6 months old? Ideally this should be a maintenance setting."

          From my later post: What are the storage specifications for the history file? Are they kept indefinitely or deleted if more than 90 days old?

          Thanks

          I don't know but I remember have read people saying that they can't find history older than 90 days. However I don't know if the data is deleted or just hidden.

          Maybe you can find something in Chromium's documentation.
