I am trying to the clear the HTML5 local storage for Safari on a Windows system. I had a look at this post but I can only find answers tailored to macs. Does anyone know how?

New versions of Safari support clearing this; see the duplicate. – Arjan Oct 31 '11 at 18:53

The physical folder should be in %APPDATA%\Apple\Safari or some variant (somebody said it might be Apple Computer but I doubt it).

At that point it's the same as the post you linked to. Find the Local Storage folder (or possibly file) and empty it.
