Searching file in Chrome cache - поиск файла в кеше браузера Хром.

Hello everybody.

I would like to tell some words about cache. Yes, I like cache.) It is not money cash, but cache of web-browser is good too. So, I consider popular web-browser Google Chrome.

For viewing of Chrome cache you can write in URL the following command chrome://cache/
Such you can view the list of clickable links to all files in cache by form http://sites.domen.com/image... However, you can't download file from cache by this link.

Ok, you, may be, know where Chrome store own cache files in:
Google Chrome: C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData(hidden)\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
Chromium: C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData(hidden)\Local\Chromium\User Data\Default
and final folder \Cache or \Media Cache.

If the destination of last folder doesn't suit for you, so you can change it by addition key  
--user-data-dir="E:\\MyFolder\User Data" 
for startup-link of your Chrome.

Unfortunately, you will not find your real cache file there. You can find there many files with encrypted filenames like f_00*.

Of course, you can set filter by written-time or size of file and will find needed file. But we know more comfortable tool for searching.

It's the cool utility ChromeCacheView from Nirsoft. We can find correspondence between real filename and encrypted filename in cache by this utility (green color frame on snapshot).
However some files Chrome save in main cache file such as data_0, data_1 etc (red color frame on snapshot).

In this case also this utility will not help us. In this case I can use another web-browser, for example InternetExplorer. InternetExplorer is using more simple layout of cache storage.)

See you later.
