I just allowed a website to use my hard disk space on Safari.

    It asks me on every page and I accidentally hit allow. Is there a way I can undo this without clearing everything?

    I'm on version 6.0.

    Thanks.

    Your ~/Library/Safari/Databases folder contains the HTML 5 local storage for Safari. You can delete any or all of these.

    I'm guessing that must be a change in Lion or ML. On SL, that path doesn't exist. I have:

    ~/Library/Safari/LocalStorage/

    Either way, you don't need to go to Finder to delete such files. You can delete them from the Privacy tab in Safari Preferences.

    That removes all local storage and cookies (at least in Safari 6). The OP wanted to do it without clearing everything.

    You can selectively delete items by clicking the Details button on the Privacy tab.

    Do you even understand what that means?


    Its saying if the site is baised on flash it will save the contents to your harddrive.

    I have a few flash games that do that. And then I can play them with out even having to open the site.

    We're not talking about Flash content, but about the databases that some websites ask to store on your computer:
