    What files are you talking about here?

    Music, videos, photos, documents? They are all handled differently

    For example, in Apple's iWorks app Pages - you can delete the files locally - on the iPad.

    However, if you've synched say photos onto your iPad then you need to delete them on your PC and then resync - you can't delete those synched photos locally. It's the same with music and videos - if they've been synched with your PC then you need to delete them on the PC and then resync

    As the last poster suggested, if you go to the iPad's native 'Settings' app, click on 'Safari' you'll see the option to 'Clear History' and 'Clear Cache'.

    There is no way to delete just a single item from your history. It's all or nothing, I'm afraid.
