Too ManyTemp Files

I've just noticed 2 sets of temp internet folders:

c:\windows\temp\ie5\4 folders
c:\windows\temporary internet files\ie5\4 folders

One has to go..but which? Or should I just delete them both and let windows/IE make the proper folders?

Thanks

Forget it...I deleted both and rebooted. It made the correct folders in c:\windows\temporary internet files\ie5\4 folders

Thanks anyway

Hi zoobie. You can in fact have your "Temporary Internet Files" anywhere you want. In IE go to Tools - Internet Options. Click on the General tab. Under the heading "Temporary internet Files" click on the Settings button, then click on the Move Folder button and navigate to where you want your files to be stored.

Ahh...Ok...Well, it's really not a matter of location...rather quantity. Thanks
