How do I set the group policy to purge users Internet Temporary files

I have users who have some very old temporary internet files.  I would like to set a domain policy to purge files older than 20 days.  I have located under USER-admin-windows-internet a coporate setting that allows you to set the default amount of disk space to use and have set this to 50mb.  However, I would also like to control the number of days, but can't seem to locate where that is set.   Can someone point me to the spot.

I don't believe that is possible to clean Temporary Internet Files in this way. They are pruged completely or not at all.
Maybe somebody else will prove me wrong and I will learn something new. ;)

Cache Folder Location

Empty Temporary Internet Files folder when browser is closed

Sorry these are the four settings this GP file adds to the defaults

A lot of great input...  But I am leaning toward agreeing with TONIUR in that there does not appear to be a seeting for the Number of Days to keep files.   It looks like you can only control the Temp Folder size.
I'll leave this open for a little while to see what you guys think.
Aaron StreetTechnical infrastructure architectureCommented:
well you could run a script to delete old files out of the temp files. and then run it using a GP.

Thanks for all the input.   I am going to try setting the Max Size limit for Internet Temp folder first and see how well this works.    Thanks again for giving me some feedback.
