Sometimes you need to save the temporarily downloaded files (cache) for the Internet explorer to save some important files.Some may even need to use the space from another drive rather than use the C: drive itself.To redirect Temporary Internet Files location to a different drive, follow these steps:

  • Save and close all running applications
  • Create a folder in the destination drive (for example, let's say 'E:\TIF')
  • Click Start, Run and type 'CONTROL INETCPL.CPL' and press enter.sparksspace
  • In the Temporary Internet Files section, click on the 'Settings' buttonsparksspace1
  • Click Move Folder button and browse to the target foldersparksspace2
  • Click 'OK '
  • Click 'Yes', when you see the window with the prompt ‘Windows will log you off to finish moving Temporary Internet Files. Do you want to continue?’


Windows will now copy all the Cookies,temporary Internet files to the destination folder
and log you off. You need to log back into the Internet for the changes to take effect.
