I need to delete my temporary internet files but at the same time, Id like to retain the ability to view some of my offline files. Can anyone tell me how to get around this. [system=win 2000/Internet Explorer 5.0]

one has nothing to do with the other
save your favorite or whatever site you want as offline content to the desktop

right click proprties of the desktop shortcut
choose syncronize
set your schedule

that's it

you can delete your temp internet files and this will not effect this content.
you can set up your browser to automatically delete these temp files upon exit if you like as well...
go to tools
advanced
scroll down to security
and select "empty temporary internet files when browser is closed"

your syncronization file will still syncronize your conent when every you have it set to ...and will always retain this info for you :)


thanks,

so you see

one has nothing to do with the other!

Thanks for your comment. I get what you're saying; however, I've noticed that internet explorers "make available offline" feature has some limitations - it only allows you save 3 links deep. However, the temporary internet files folder allows you save as many links as you want - all you have to do is visit these links.

I tried to copy temporary internet files and save them elsewhere, however, I couldnt paste them back into the temporary internet files folder.

temporory internet files are for cache only........
it helps the pages load faster as the user requests a page that has been visited before.

this is not designed to be used as a folder to access web links
however you can certainly do that if you like....

Yes the limitation of the offline content is 3 links deep which could be hundreds of pages.

if you require such large needs...try these
