Temporary Internet Files Move and delete
Posted on 2009-12-17
Windows XP Pro SP3 Spanish and English Version
I have Acronis Disk DIrector V. 10, I did a small partion (about 1 GB) and Acronis Drive Cleanser
I create a partition called TIF
Now I have E:\TIF
1.- In the Temporary Internet Files section, I click Settings
2.- Click Move Folder button and browse to the target drive E:\TIF
3.- Click OK
4.- Click Yes, when I see the prompt "Windows will log you off to finish moving Temporary Internet Files. Do you want to continue ?"
5.- Once Windows copy all the Cookies, temporary internet files to E:\TIF, I Click Edit -> Select All -> Delete all
I can see an icon called Recycled
6.- Once again I follow the steps 1 to 4. NOW whit the difference the target folder is the default (C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\)
7.- Restart Computer and delete the partition D:\TIF using Acronis DD 10 or Acronis Drive Cleanser
Why I do this?
I can not delete cookies some of them are malware
My computer keeps extensive information (websites visited, documents, pictures or video files I have opened)
I Think the best way to erase completely all traces is Wiping a Hard Drive or Partition
Why I dont want to use programs like CCleaner?
Deletes the TIF but the files like cookies remains somewhere in the HD. AM I RIGTH?
Please let me know what do you think of my solution to move and delete the TIF or if there is an easy way to do this task like a batch or something
Thanks in advance for any help, information or suggest you can provide me
