Hello,
I'm trying to access this IE History for a remote user and I can't. I click on the Hidden folder but it won't open. I have full admin right to the box. It seems the only History folder I have access to open is my own. Any way around this?

I have tried under a local admin account and domain admin account and both fail. I have also tried to access on the machine and remotely still unable to open folder.

Using the following address to access the folder...

\\**************\c$\Users\AppData\Microsoft\Windows\History

:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files

Tried the IEHistoryViewer won't bring anything up for another user. Also Temp IE files folder does not give you what History does. Temp IE files folder only holds minor files and updates saved and deployed during your IE browsing. It's simply temporary files used by IE. I need the History folder.

old thread...but...

\\[pc-name]\c$\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\History

That folder is cleared every time if history is set to not save on browser close. XP users are at a different location. Something like c$\documents and settings\[username]\application data (or local settings\application data).

Good luck.
