Hi guys

I am new in this website and I read some of the topics. I don't know if I am in the right place to make my question, but I hope someone will be able to help me out.
I need help in transfering files to the temporary internet folder.
I have transferred the cookies to the Cookies folder now I need to transfer the file that I saved earlier to the Temporary Internet Folder because I can't paste any file in there. I need to do this so I can automatically login in a website that I had the password stored earlier but now I cant because it seems that the temporary files had been deleted and I couldn't sign in again. I tried to restore the PC to all the restoration points so the files would be restored but that didnt help either. Then I recovered the cookies and the rest of the files through Recover my files software and now I need to transfer them to their corresponding folders. Someone please help me and tell me if that is possible and how to do it.

Hi dreni and welcome to BC

You really don't need the Temporary Internet Files to automatically log into a website. That function is handled by a cookie that stores your user name and password.

I use the cookie saver function in CCleaner to keep those cookies that log me in to websites protected. Then, when I periodically run CCleaner to clean up the junk on my machine these cookies are left alone. If you want to try CCleaner, open the program and go to the Options button. All your cookies will be displayed in the cookies to delete window. Just click on a cookie and use the arrow to move your "good" cookie to the cookies to keep window.

Another good little tool to do the same job is Jason's Cookie Jar from Jason's toolbox. It can be set to save your good cookies and to delete the rest on each startup.

Your operating system determines where your cookies are stored. If you just log in to those websites you want to automatically log into you will create a new cookie so you really don't need to recover your old cookies.

What is your operating system?

Hi back

Thanks for the welcome and the reply. I think I understood your reply I just am not sure if I got the correct answer. I had stored my password to a website and I automatically logged in there through a shortcut from my desktop. And 2 days ago when I tried to do it I couldn't login, it seems that the cookies and the temporary files had been deleted. I restored my PC (WIN XP) to all the restoration points I had in the System Restore, cause I thought the files would come back but it didn't help, I couldn't login there. I recovered the cookies and a file which seems to be the main file that was used to automatically log me in. I don't know what type of file it is but it is around 135 KB. I placed the cookies that I recovered to the Cookies folder now I think I need to place this 135 KB file to a folder but I don't know which one :thumbsup:. I think it might be temporary internet files but files can't be pasted in there. So that's the thing, I hope I was clear now, if you need any other information I will make sure to bring it to you.. I hope you can suggest me something on how I can place those files in their corresponding places.

Thanks, Dreni

That file won't help you. What is the full name of that file?

If you go to the website you can just log in with your user name and password and the website will put another cookie on your computer. Recovery software isn't very good sometimes and your recovered file may be damaged.

Hi back,

The name of the file is: member;jsessionid=4KDTBZ52BHY35QFIGY4YAUQ[1]. I know I can do the way you suggested me, but at the moment that is impossible :thumbsup:. So if there's a way to get that back it'd be great. The cookies had never been deleted because when I pasted them where in the cookies folder I got the dialog box asking if I should replace them because they already existed there. I suspect it's something to do with temporary files...

Thanks

The cookie is what's going to automatically log you in.
Temporary internet files has nothing to do with that.
