Hello, today i wanted to recover one of my older files that i think i deleted permanently, so i downloaded recuva and started scanning. After recuva scanned, i found alot of pictures that i haven't really saved  names were like [0001].png and there are a lot of pictures with that name. Recuva cant seem to find path to origin of the files so it says it was saved under c:/? , so i would like to know what do you guys think about it? Is google chrome saving those pictures? How to stop it from doing that?
Any suggestion will be appriciated. :)

Most likely those files are web images that are saved by the browser and stored in a temp folder until you delete the temp files.

I don't use Chrome, but IE does store those images until deletion.

I don't have enough knowledge to say whether you can prevent the browser from saving the images.
