Google Chrome Cache File Recovery Overview
Like the above case, sometimes, you might want to view or recover a business logo, an image, an online video or some other web content that you viewed previously on a web page in Google Chrome. Fortunately, cache files make data recovery from Google Chrome possible and easy. In order to speed up access to websites, Google Chrome creates a cache on your computer. The browser cache contains information from Internet sites you have visited. And, if you don't clear it, you can view or recover those temporary Internet files easily from the cache files.
Here, we will show you on how to view and recover Google Chrome cache files with Chrome cache viewer. You can try these tutorials to fully retrieve or extract your data from Google Chrome cache files.
How to View Chrome Cache Files Easily
There are several ways to access and view Chrome cache files. You can try any or all of them to view cache files in Google Chrome.
View Cache by visiting chrome://cache/ in Chrome 65
You can view chrome caches by visiting chrome://cache and chrome://view-http-cache. But this only works for Chrome 65. In version 65, this feature has been removed because of the bugs.
Step 1. Click the address bar at the top of your Google Chrome window, type "About: cache" into the box, and press "Enter." A page will appear with a list of cached files and their addresses.
Step 2. Press the "Ctrl + F" keys on your keyboard to open the find bar.
Step 3. Type part of the name or address of a cached file into the find box and press "Enter" to find it. Continue pressing "Enter" to the page through any matching results.
Step 4. Select and copy the full address of the cached file on the page. Then, open the address in Chrome and press "Enter" to load the file from the cache.
Step 5. Right-click the image, page, or script and select "Save As" to save the cached file to your computer.
View Cache Files Using Chrome Extension
If you are using Chrome 66, the above method won't be helpful. However, you can use a Chrome extension to view cache files in Google.
Step 1. Open your Chrome browser and go to the Chrome Web Store.
Step 2. Search for "Web Cache Viewer" and add it to your browser. After installation, you can right-click on any web link in Chrome and choose "Web Cache Viewer". You can choose to view the cached page from either Wayback Machine or Google archive.
View Chrome Cache Using Third-Party Software
If the first two solutions don't work, you can still have the last chance to view and recover Chrome cache files by using a third-party Chrome cache viewer. As the cache files have no extension, you can't view the content directly unless using a cache viewer.
In general, the Chrome cache viewer locates and reads the cache folder of the Chrome web browser. That is to say; you need to make sure that you have this cache folder on your computer. The Chrome cache location: C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache in Windows 10. If you have lost the cache folder, don't worry, you can use hard drive recovery software to retrieve it to recover the Chrome cache files.
