Group Policy Internet Explorer Maintenance

There is a Group Policy setting in Internet Explorer Maintenance Advanced mode that allows a limit to be put on the size of a users Temporary Internet File cache. Does anyone know what happens when that limit is reached? Does it delete the oldest files with a caching algorithm or does it delete all temporary internet files?

If the cache is full it will pop-up the user to clear the cache.If the user cancel the same the pop will continue to come to perform the deletion after some time.

I will recommend to delete the tempararly internet files by GPO.
User Configuration/Policies/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Internet Explorer/
it won't delete the old files it will just stop IE writing any more temp files - if the policy setting is enforced - there is some suggestion that it doesn't always honour the settings

think of it like the old User Profile Limit size on NT4 and Win2000 that just came up with a warning

you should ensure you set the limit to a reasonable size and also make sure the setting for delete temp files on exit is enabled
