Windows 7: browser history access

browser history access

Recently my IE browser was updated & it appears it deleted my browser history. I am trying to reaquire an old weblink. I was able to access index.dat, but it appears it only goes back 3 weeks which is the setting I have for browser history to delete weblinks. I attempted ipconfig /displaydns which to my understanding would display all browser history even the deleted links. It appears to display only recent activity.

Does IE purge the cache when updated? Is there another tool or am I not employing ipconfig correctly.

Any advice?

There is nothing you can really do to regain this information I'm afraid.

Next time daily backups or using Chrome would normally prevent this .
