Access Google Chrome cache with ChromeCacheView

chrome-logoGoogle Chrome, like every other web browser saves the cache on the hard drive so that the website loads up more quickly, the next time it is accessed. Many times if we to want download or re-watch a video we saw earlier, the first place to look is the web cache.

While it is possible to access the cache manually on the hard drive,  but it doesn't display any meaningful information about the content.

Location of Google Chrome Cache Folder:

Google Chrome Cache folder is located under [User Profile]\Local Settings\ Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache


ChromeCacheView is a small utility that reads the cache folder of Google Chrome and displays meaningful information of all files currently stored in the cache. The following information is displayed: URL, File Type, File size, Last accessed time, Expiration time, Server name, Server response, and more.


Simply select the items you want from the cache list, go to the File Menu and click “Copy Selected Cache Files To…” option and save the files where you desire.

ChromeCacheView also allows you to create an html or text reports for further analysis.
