Windows 7: Browser cache/temp/history related question

Browser cache/temp/history related question

Ok say in Opera (browser) I want EVERY trace of things I search (from the fact that I actually went to CNN.com - Breaking News, U.S., World, Weather, Entertainment & Video News, to the images and even streamed video on the page) to to be stored in a different partition, how do I be sure it has been completed?

I moved the cache, cacheop and the temporary_downloads folder but I didnt see anything related to "temp" "temp internet folder" or "history"
so how do I be sure ALL of my history is being stored on my chosen partition?

same answer for chrome/firefox?

thanks a lot!!!

I think in Opera you can use the same firefox method. Type "opera:config" (without quotes), then find User Pref and there you can find everything possible. You can also edit opera6.ini manually. The page below explains a lot of settings.

they mustve changed the name of opera6.ini
i did change what i saw in there, but again all that was, was opcache, cache aand temporary_downloads
does there have to be a "temp" and or temporary internet file folder? and/or a history?
how do i make sure there's not?

Operator Cache Directory4=%TEMP%\opera\opcache

Temporary Download Directory=%TEMP%\opera\tempdownload
