Cache Detective is a very easy-to-use utility that reads and extracts the cache files of many browsers and chat applications. Caches store copies of documents the user has accessed on the Internet in order to reduce server access time. The information contained can frequently be used by an forensic investigator or network administrator to determine whether illegal activities have been committed. Cache Detective will extract existing cache files that have not been flushed. Typical data you can extract with Cache Detective includes pictures, movies, HTMLs, PDFs, and more.
