I have a very strange situation on my Win 7 laptop computer. I saved some files, which went to a file labeled TK2PP4YP(I was not given a choice in where to save these). File path as shown in the Save window is: (username)/App Data/Local/Microsoft/Windows/Temporary Internet Files/Content IE5/TK2PP4YP.
When I went to move the files from this location to another location on the computer that I use for working files, I could not find the Content IE5 folder, or the TK2... folder, either in looking directly in Temporary Internet Files, or by searching the entire drive (since this is on a laptop with no externals attached, there is only one drive to search).
I did a bit of research, and went to both Control Panel and Internet Options and changed what folders are displayed to show everything (including system files). Still no sign of the files when looking directly in Temp Int Files or with full drive search.
Went back to original file and hit "Save" again -- the TK2 folder popped up showing the two files I'd saved there. At this point, I used the arrow to select the Content IE5 folder, and found several dozen folders. Going up another level to Temporary Internet Files yielded only the message "No items match your search" which I thought was strange, since I was saving, not searching. Going up yet another level to Windows shows no Temporary Internet Files folder. Yet, if I go to Windows Explorer or My Computer, I find the Temporary Internet Files folder under Windows, but it has no Content IE5 folder.
I looked in both my personal and business User identities, but found no TK2 folder in either one. How can this file show up in one place, but not in the other?
Thank you in advance for any clues anyone can offer for how to find the missing folders!
