    Where are ALL the Internet Temporarily Files stored?

    I am unable to retrieve all the files from the internet temporarily folder.

    For instance: After visiting certain sites where there are certain flash
    animations (.flv) or videos or mp3, I am unable to find them inside the
    internet temporarily folder? I could only see some files which are less than
    200KB in size. I had already set the disk space usage to 1000MB? Why is this
    so?

    Kindly assist please. Thanks

    I use a 3rd-party utility to save Flash animations out of the web
    cache, but I notice that many sites fail to work with this, prolly by
    design. Some flash clips don't work as expected either; they may take
    you straight to the web site of origin, or immediately end, or not
    appear within the cache at all.

    There's probably commercial interests at work here, i.e. you're
    breaking their money chain if you don't have to go to the site (and
    thus be counted as an ad-view) every time you want to re-watch the
    same clip - and that's before considering possible issues that arise
    if you were to redistribute it yourself.

    Thank you everyone for your valuable advices.

    I had solved my issue.

    It is just a click , which is "untick" the enable protected mode within
    'Internet Options' - 'Security', this enable me to view the files. I believe
    this helps, unless someone else got a better suggestions.
