Yahoo PhotoSharing with Yahoo Messenger

Does anyone have information about the folder under Yahoo Messenger for images that have been shared between people using the Photo Sharing (not file sending) tool.

The location is under C\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Cache\PhotoSharing

I have recently started a case where there are dozens of cp images in this folder; I would be very interested in finding who they came from and how they got there.

Hi Jonathan,
Did you ever find out what the PhotoSharing folder was about? I've got a similar job at the moment.
Thanks

Were you ever able to get an answer to this question? I am working on a case at the moment and am trying to work out if the folder names in the 'PhotoSharing' directory can be resolved to a particular messaging session or user.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Regards

Rob

Sorry Rob, the investigation was over three years ago on behalf of an ex-employee and I don't remember the outcome or have an easy way of reviewing my case files!

Jonathan.

From experimentation I have shown that even quite a large image can end up getting cached in the yahoo photo sharing folder, even if the user chooses not to accept it. I realise this will very often not be the case but thought it would be worth considering

Good luck with your case
