Google Browser Caches

Migration Manager already eliminates the migration of the "Temporary Internet Files" that contain sometimes very large internet website cache files.  Browsers that use the directory above are automatically kept from migrating by activating the setting in the user interface.

Preferences for Extraction

     [ ] Exclude the user's temporary internet files

For Google Chrome, which does not implement their browser using the standard Windows directory, the best way to achieve this is to create a File Rule or Rules.

In the interface select File Rules.

Create the following rule:

Click: 'File Rules'

Select:  Exclude

Create the following rules:

%USERLOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache

%USERLOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Code Cache

It is *not* necessary to apply *.* to the rule but it is optional.

Be sure to click Yes to including subdirectories.
