If you wanted to do it manually, the history is in this folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\<USERNAME>\Local Settings\History

Here is one plug-in that might do what you're wanting automatically...

Or you can use a batch file that will copy the History and the TIF folder to a separate folder each day...!

The file will be as follows

------------------------------------------------

Cls
c:
cd\
MD History
MD TIF
cd D:\Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\History
copy /v *.* C:\history
cd..
cd D:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
Copy /v *.* C:\TIF
Exit

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note that Username should be your Account username and the documents and settings should be located in the C drive...

You can save this to notepad and name it as "Save History + TIF.bat", then schedule this to run daily in a specific time by using the schedule items program which is located in Start --> Programs --> accessories --> System tools --> Schedule tasks..

Hope this helps..
