I have XP Pro and I went to save a document and the default was set to OLK2A in my temporary internet files folder. So I went to my Temporary Internet Files folder but there are no other folders there, i even set it to show hidden and system folders but still nothing.

Anybody know how i can find this folder?

    Hello RunToTheHills =)

    You have to boot into the safemode to view all the folders in TIF folder :)

    this is annoying - go to save it again (or another file)

    you get the save as dialog box opened in OLK2A, then you can right click the files in there and copy and paste them out - saves a reboot :)

    Start a CMD prompt session and type "dir /a"

    c:\documents and settings\ramesh\local settings\temporary internet files\content.ie5\<random folder name>

    Type this from Start/Run:

    cmd /k cd "g:\documents and settings\ramesh\local settings\temporary internet files\content.ie5"

    Replace "ramesh" with your userprofile name.
