Hidden internet files

  Fostermaster 16:22 30 Aug 2003

While messing around recently I accidentaly found
some secret hidden files which cannot be accessed
from the temp. internet folder but do reside there
somewhere, you can only find them when you go into 'START- FIND- FILES or FOLDERS Then type in the following.


Can anybody tell me what these files are.

They may be internal references unique to your machine and have no meaning outside that environment.

The names of these folders will be different on another computer. For instance mine are called 4GICIF9N, K3IVB67A etc. They are the folders which store your internet files.

The four sub-folders within the Temporary Internet Files are the folders that actually hold your temp files.

See click here for more detail.

To view them from within Windows Explorer, go to Tools > Folder Options > View and select 'view hidden files'.

They are not secret, but they are hidden by default.

I cannot imagine why you chose to perform a search for 'r4qak8da' or 'rbbm6m6v'.
