I have a new Sony Vaio PC Windows Home Premium. There are very few cache files stored in the Temporary Internet Folder. Can you tell me why this is, or where they are being stored?

Software/Hardware used:
Windows Home Premium

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Another problem I have on this new PC is that vids on some sites don’t play, even when I turn on compatibility. When I switch it on the vid frame goes blank. I bought speedbit video accelerator but it makes no difference. Rob

    It might be normal, or it might not. We don't have the PC, and we have no information on how it's been used nor how long nor how often nor how it's configured nor what OS version it has nor what browser is used.  We don't even know what "very few cache files" means. (Five? 50? 500? This Win2K laptop is used extensively, for the past seven or eight years, and currently lists [213 + 472] objects. Is that "few" or "many"?) -- Tom

    My previous Vaio Pc amassed literally thousands of cache files if I used it a lot on the net. This new one hardly has any, except a few cookies. Perhaps it doesn't matter, but I was wondering if they might be stored/hidden somewhere else. James

    Well, assuming you have Windows 7 and you're using IE 9, you might review Where is the Temporary Internet Files Folder located in Windows 7 and Vista. (If either OS or browser is different, please post correct versions.) If that page's info makes sense and you need to do something with the files, post back for more.   Tom

    your cache file is there so that you can load the website faster the next time you go around. that is why u can set what ever the disk space to be used for your cache.

    I already had the cache capacity set 1024. I gather now thatthe files are hidden, and I've fond a few by going appdata, microsoft, windows, users etc.. But there aren't many cache files there either. Thanks for the comments, still scratching my head! Rob
