Locating specific file in TIF

Posted: 02-10-2009, 12:33 AM

I've read over a few old threads to try to find an answer to my proble
but nothing seems to work

I am trying to locate a JPEG in my TIF but I'm failing miserably!! Whe
accessing my TIF it only seems to show a limited amount of files an
none of them are image files. In fact, I can't seem to locate any of th
image files in any Temp file. I have used the obvious root extenstion
[eg: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Window s\Temporar
Interne
Files\] and made sure that my folders are not hidden, but still I can'
find a single image file that may have been saved to my hard drive

Using the C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temporary Interne
Files\ leads me to the "Access Is Denied" error, and I have selecte
the 'Show Hidden Files And Folders' button and unticked the 'Hid
Protected OS Files'

I know the date and time the Image I am trying to locate was originall
accessed using IE and a part of it's file name but searching for i
hasn't proved successful either

Any help or direction from here would be hugely appreciated

Hi, Nothing.

TIF files are NOT "normal" files and cannot be handled in the normal ways!

As their name says, they are TEMPORARY Internet Files and are not intended
to be permanent - or even semi-permanent storehouses. In fact, I always
check the box under Security in Tools | Internet Options | Advanced to
"Empty Temporary Internet Files folder when browser is closed". Even if
that box is not checked, IE deletes files whenever it needs more space to
store new files, so there is no guarantee that any file, even a very recent
one, will still be in the TIF. To save a .jpg or other file, you should use
IE's File | Save as... option while you have the web page with the picture
on your screen. (That's "generic" advice; some web pages may have other
options.)

IF that .jpg is still in your TIF, your best hope to see and save it would
probably be to use the tools built into IE itself. Click Tools | Internet
Options. The next step varies a little depending on which version of IE and
Windows you are running. In IE8/Win7, the middle of the page says "Browsing
history"; other versions say something else, but they all have a button that
says "Settings"; click this. The next page is where you manage your TIF.
You can change its size and location and do other things. There are a
couple of buttons to "View objects" and "View files". See if you can locate
your missing .jpg here If so, you MAY be able to click on it and then use
File | Save as..." Or you may not. This is where I run out of ideas
because I haven't really explored much past this point.

Good luck!

Hey, thanks for your responce. I understand that TIF files are no
ordinarily there to be "accessed", though can be done so, and in thi
case, there is a file I need to locate and once I find it, accessing i
won't be a problem. Simply copying the file and pasting into an
"Documents" folder will allow me to open it, in this case anyway as th
file in question is a JPEG. Only problem remains I still cannot locat
-any -JPEG files in my TIF. I have gone the standard IE > Interne
Options > (Browsing History) Settings > View Files route and it shows
number of different types of files, but no image files

My only assumption is that my image files are being temporarily save
in an area or folder I cannot access. Either that or IE just isn'
saving those types of files, which is odd, but a possibility

Thanks again for the responce though

This may not be of help to you, but I just had a look at my Internet
Options| General| Settings| View files and there are lots of JPEG Image
files amongst the TIF files. Also lots of GIF and PNG images as well.
