I visited a Craiglist listing a couple weeks ago that had some pictures I'm trying to retrieve. The listing has since then been deleted, so is there any way I can recover the pictures from my Windows Vista computer if they were cached at some point?

Any hints on how I could find these on my local hard drive if they exist?

What browser were you using? Also, have you tried a Google search for the page and seeing if the is a 'Cached' link in the results? – pelms Sep 26 '09 at 20:13

On Firefox type about:cache on the url to browse the cache.

I don't know if Internet Explorer has something similar but you can google for a cache viewer utility.

For example: ie cache view utility.
