Huge amount of firefox profile cache data affecting windows backups

Posted

My windows backups are taking forever as I seem to have a huge amount of firefox profile cache data (c 1GB). Seen this on my wife's PC and my own - both running Win 7 & Firefox 9.0.1

This is found under:

appdata\local\mozilla\firefox\profiles\63bjsm2k.default\cache\...


any ideas out there?
