How do I erase all the files that are on my gen smarts?

GenSmarts doesn't keep or make copies of what it analyzes, so there's nothing really to erase in the traditional sense of genealogy data. There is the actual software program itself, of course, and related settings and such.

There are two folders in Vista and Win7 where GenSmarts will keep files...

1) the program folder - e.g. C:\Program Files\GenSmarts or C:\Program Files (x86)\GenSmarts

2) the data folder - e.g. C:\Users\Public\Documents\GenSmarts

If you delete the above two folders, then the GenSmarts program and it's settings would be gone from your computer.

If you only wanted to get rid of the marks you've made on suggestions (found/not found/ etc.), you could just delete the ResearchResults.csv file in the data folder.

In WinXP, there is no separate data folder - everything goes into the program folder.
