Setting not honored?
Authored by: lstewart on Jan 16, '02 09:51:51AM

I've noticed the same thing on my machine (same OS and browser versions). It seems like perhaps IE disregards the Cache Size setting completely. And of course, since the cache is in a web archive, it's not simple to go remove just the oldest or largest offending items. (Is that even possible?)

Has anyone seen a copy of IE on OS X behave properly in this regard?

Mine works just the way it should. The Cache setting in IE's preferences is your "web page cache". The Download cache is something completely different. It is your incomplete downloads being stored. Your actual cache file for web pages you've viewed is stored here:

/Users/UserName/Library/Caches/MS Internet Cache/IE Cache.waf

At least this is where mine is located. Mine is set to 100MB in my preferences and the cache file in the above location is exactly the same.
