I had imported some .KMZ files using JOSM. It unfortunately had a file path C://Docs//Name//...... in one of the tag fields key: path

I removed them, but they still show up in history. Is there a way to remove this field alone?

Do you mean "some history viisble with JOSM itself"? If so, only you can see that. If you are also NMD10S on the main site, then rest assured I can't see anything listed under your account at all.

@SomeoneElse No, I'm not. For instance, if you check the "View History" of this changeset, one of the fields in Version #1 shows key: path, which contains the upload file path with the name. Wonder if I could remove that from history.

Yes, you can arrange for that to be removed. Send an email to the Data Working Group (data@openstreetmap.org) and they can redact that information from the history.

Please include in your email which tags you want to be removed from which objects.
