Temporary internet files

Open internet explorer and click on the cogwheel, then on "Internet options":

First tab, click on "settings":

Adjust the allocated space

Adjust as you want, by default it is 250mo.

If the cache is larger, for example 500mb plus the data will be stored in the cache folder and allow internet explorer to load certain elements of the page more quickly. However, it takes up more space.

If, on the contrary, the cache is too small, for example 10mb, the browser will spend its time reloading the elements as soon as the value entered is reached. But in this case on the contrary it will take little space (pure example do not put below 50mo).

Move the temporary folder

Create a folder that will receive the "time" files on the partition of another hard drive preferably.

Click move folder.

Choose the previously created folder to move them.
