While searching for ways to reduce the size of backups, I noticed a couple interesting things. One is that Opera saves a slew of files in one of its subfolders called "icons." The files are named for web sites. They are so small I assume they are favicons. I don't see any way to get rid of them using Opera's "Delete Private Data" feature. There are also files named for websites in some Flash Player folders. These are under Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\. Also under \Macromedia\Flash Player\macromedia.com\support\flashplayer\sys\. Makes me wonder if Adobe (as Macromedia) is monitoring some sites we visit.

Edit: I looked around more and found this: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/...cts-flash.html
