where is safari cache located?
I am trying to download the tutorials about iPhoto 09 from the apple website. I am having problems with saving the QT movies. Is it easier to just grab them from safari cache? where is the safari cache located?
thanks a lot for your help.

thanks for ur reply.
I am using OS 10.4.11, and Safari 4.0.2. When I go to the folders as per your indication, I find: username, library, caches, safari, then a series of folders numbered like: 01, 02 et until 15. Each of these folders contains other 15 folders numbered the same way. Each of these folders contains a bunch of files of this type:
I cant open them, so I cant retrieve anything in the cache.
Could you please help further?
thanks a lot.

Hey mayask! If in a future you need recoup any cached file from Safari, you can try the SafariCacheExplorer... it saved me from some disasters... hehehe, I guess it will be useful to you!
