How to erase history of exterior HD files viewed?

Did I ask that right? I look at movies and photos on an exterior hard drive, not knowing that my Windows 7 has kept a record of every one. I tried deleting them one at a time, then lost the history folder altogether. Does anyone know the name of this library, how to access it, or how to erase everything in it? Thanks.
