Location of cache files for future reference:

C:\Users\<user-name>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Code Cache\Js

I'm going to do this when I get home from work later this afternoon.

There are only 13 files in the Js folder each 1KB in size. Where are these thousands of files I'm supposed to be seeing???

When I backup to the Code Cache there is nothing.
