Removing 300MB of temporary internet files because IE doesn't
Posted on 2006-03-31
I'm using IE6 on Windows XP.
In IE, I have set the maximum size for Temporary files to be 200MB and have just pressed "Remove files". The Temporary internet files directory only appears to contain some cookies now, which I haven't deleted. So, everything seems to be OK.
However, I believed that I should have more free disk space by now, so I ran a disk scanning utility (FolderInfo V2.18) and it showed that, although invisible, the Content.IE5 folder within the Temporary internet files directory (C:\Documents & Settings\Luc\Local Settings\Temporary internet files\) still has about 300MB of space used, divided over about 20 subfolders! These are mainly javascipt files, named somewhat similar to "13.js", but it also has some .html files and some other file types.
How can I delete these files without destroying anything and why doesn't IE remove them?!
Thanks in advance,
