- remove group.index
- edit active file to set himark whatever you like
- run makehistory

would do what you want.

It's necessary every time you recreate history.

} Next question, should I do a ctlinnd cancel on all articles and then
} rmgroup ?  Or can I just rebuild the history file after removing a group
} from the active file using makehistory, manually remove the articles using
} rm, and then run makehistory to rebuild the overview? Should I remove all
} articles  and the group, readd the group and copy the articles not
} cancelled to reset the hi and lowmarks in the active file?

I'm not sure what you're aiming, but assuming you just want
to delelte a group, you need to remove articles manually for
that group.  Any other operation is not needed.

tradindexed does not care articles for deleted newsgroups.
Neigher ovdb does.  buffindexed DOES care.
