This plugin can sweep system history, history from all contacts or only from chosen; also it may sweep history older than certain time; and may do it at Miranda NG startup/shutdown.

When content is deleted from an unencrypted SQLite database, the content is not usually erased but rather the space used to hold the content is marked as being available for reuse. This can allow deleted content to be recovered by a hacker or by forensic analysis. Running Main menu → Database → Compact database will clean the database of all traces of deleted content, thus preventing an adversary from recovering deleted content.
