After you do this, you will be able to see all of the temporary files that Internet Explorer will download. This includes most movies and music. To get there you will need to follow a specific path. Go to My Computer/Users then click on the folder that has your user name. In that folder you should be able to click on the folder that says “AppData.” From there you will go through a series of folders, “Ã¢Â?Â¦/Local/Microsoft/Windows/Temporary Internet Files/Low/Content.IE5”.
In the “Content.IE5” folder, you will find a number of folders, about 21, that will have the files that you seek. The files seem to be randomly dropped into any one of these folders. Luckily, there are only 21 folders. A shortcut to use is to simply sort by size once you get into each folder since music and video will almost always be the largest files.
