To find where Windows has buried files like what is stored in the TM cache, I use the file manager ZTreeWin.
http://www.ztree.com/html/ztreewin.htm
It's a clone of the old DOS file manager XTree Gold.
I get it to log the entire drive, show everything on the drive sorted by date and time, then I copy the stuff I want to protect to another location on the system.

Been 2 months and last night I thought I'd have another go looking for my cache folder. I did a search for .gbx on my computer. Started this before but took to long but let it just run last night. I found it and it was hiden well lol Must have been a Trackmania patch that moved it, I'm on Vista by the way. My cache is now located here if anyone else can't find there's C:\Users\John & Tracy\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\ProgramData\TrackMania\Cache

John & Tracy being me and the wife but I'm sure you will find yours now if you're looking for it :thumbsup:

If it's beneath the "VirtualStore" folder then Vista moved it out of the way by itself...

Ah! that explains the Vista differences Leak! :thumbsup:

I always turn off UAC in Vista/Win7 for my Xampp server stuff as soon as I do a fresh install of windows.

One to remember when helping Vista users in the future. :thumbsup:
