I found an article here: How To: Delete geoprocessing history from a geodatabase
The only explanation the article gives is "GIS administrators and managers sometimes need to delete the geoprocessing history from a feature class or workspace metadata."
Which is not very helpful.
However since this metadata is not a large size whats the point of removing it? Its obviously there for a reason so can someone tell me what the purpose of why it would be useful to do this? And also what negative impacts it could have from doing so?
