I have 2 terminal serves, running w2003 o.s. The disk space is getting under 1gb and I am concerned.
How do I delete the internet explorer cache for users profiles connected to the terminal server?
I don't know the location on the Terminal server for the users internet cache?

The Internet Cache can be found in C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files.

A much better approach to clearing these out would be to enable the Group Policy setting which can be found in the area described at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Security/Operating_Systems_Security/Windows/Q_21962385.html#a17368111. This will clear the cache after users close Internet Explorer, automatically.

The folder temporary internet files is not present on the terminal server as specified in the path
C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files.
Only the temp folder and application data folder are present.

The default location for the Internet Cache is at the specified location. If it is not located there, it has either been deleted or moved elsewhere.

Have you tried entering the path into a shortcut? It may be that the folder is hidden and you simply cannot see it. A shortcut would expose the folder and allow you to access it, if it does indeed exist in that location.
