information you want"
You can use recent files to recover the
information you want.
Recent files will guide you to the info you need
Recent files, also referred to as temporary files,
are those created automatically and stored on the system's hard
Microsoft Windows uses many temporary files to store data about
the users' web browsing history and settings. The most common files
associated with Windows temporary files are
index.dat and the entire "Cookies" folder under "Documents and
Settings" that stores
HTTP cookies. Most popular programs create temporary files and
then leave them behind.
If you are up to stealing some information,
working with the recent files is the easiest way to do that. Even if
the actual file is deleted, the temporary copy of it is still
stored. Use some utility to recover information from them. You can
see which applications were run, what sites were browsed and what
docs were made.
We have to mention though that the described
above is only possible when the user is not concerned about his
system safety and personal privacy. That means he doesn't use the
software designed to clean up completely the recent files such as
Get RecentCleaner to protect your privacy
