Might be the dumb question of the day, but I am assuming that the only way to clear the persistent storage in a Simulator is to stop the Simulator, run clean on the Simulator and start the Simulator back up again?
Or is there a neat trick to test persistent storage that doesn't require a restart cycle of a Simulator?

You can also clean persistent storage in a Simulator without run clean.bat.
In eclipse menu ,click on blackberry ->; Erase simulator file.
Hope this help

Which BlackBerry icon do I click on to get the correct Eclipse context menu?
I cannot find the Erase simulator file option.

Look under "Project" --> "BlackBerry" -- "Clean Simulator..." at the bottom of the menu.

The only options I have in the Clean Simulator dialog window are:
BlackBerry JRE 5.0.0
These options can only be ran when the Simulator is not running. I was looking for an option to erase persistent storage while the Simulator is running.

Because you want to clear persistent storage, you want to clear the .dmp files (i.e. Remove Files from the File System). So put a check mark on that option and click OK.

I didn't read your message very well, my bad. I guess if you can't clear the storage when the simulator is running then this won't help.

Just to add that on Windows 7 64-bit the clean simulator method does not clean my persistent storage. To clean it I have to delete the entire contents of: C:\Users\<username>\net\rim\fledge-2.
This completely resets the simulator to default settings.
