I was copying a large quantity of files from my external HDD via my PC to my new Mybook Live 3Tb. After a while my PC stated that the C drive was full.
After a long time trying to find out why, I noticed that there was a copy of all of the files I had copied, in a hidden Temporary Internet Files folder.
An example is
C:\Documents and Settings\LocalService\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\BN3WSW8K
This does not clear when using Internet Options - Delete Browsing History, and it ignores any size limit placed on the Browser Cache.
I tested with a single file from my C drive, copied it to my Mybook Live and yes, it appeared in the TIF.
Is there a way this undesireable behaviour can be prevented, as it renders the massive storage of the Mybook useless if it needs the same on the PC as well!
I believe WebDAV may be what is using this TIF folder. I wonder if that is loaded by using the little Drive Mapper utility WD Link.
