    Visited a site on a specific date; can i view same details via cache?


    Hi Guys

    I'm using Windows 10. I visited a website on 11th October to look at a 'meter reading'; can I view the same page via cache?

    If so how?

    The meter reading was '3000' on 11th October, it is now showing '16000'

    Many thanks in advance.

    Don't know if you can find it here: if it's specific to your account, doubt it would be available..
    Wayback Machine

    Cache view? Depends which browser. E.g.
    Viewing Browser Cache in Firefox - Digital Media Minute

    Smart meter?

    Hi Dalchina

    No won't be on Wayback Machine
    I've logged into my account using Chrome and Microsoft Edge.
    Yes Smart Meter; energy companies make more money when they create errors on purpose.

    perhaps..

    If meter reading as wrong as that, expect company to be reasonable.. if necessary they can do a test run with a second meter attached to prove discrepancy. Hopefully your online account shows some readings. Might be interesting to know how often they read it..

    I'm transferring from one company to another. The 'closing reading' is around 3000 for the old company, the opening reading for new company is 3000 (I logged in yesterday it was 3000, which is correct), today it shows 16000. I normally take screen shots of the accounts. These companies can do as they like. I sent OFGEM an email earlier this week about 'false misrepresentation' by my old supplier.

    There's a history tab; gives a summary of readings.

    The company has sorted out the issue.

    That's a shame.

    Well, it's good for you of course and I'm happy to hear it's been sorted. But I had been hoping that someone would come up with an ingenious way to reconstruct old web pages from the browse cache

    (I've not been able to find one)

    Edge browser history


    I'm not at my PC and can't see enough detail but this may point to a solution to review the history of sites visited with MS Edge.

    Yes, you can review your history see what you visited and when. But what the OP originally asked (and what I had been hoping there was a clever solution to) is to use the browser's cached pages to actually look at a page as it was when you visited it a week ago (or however far back your browser cache can go).

    Did you ever get to see the hidden windows files back in the days of win95 & win98? There was a website named with a less than a complimentary reference to ms and it had directions to guide you blindly through hidden folders in C: using dos commands. You could navigate to massive folders that stored endless html, jpg, & mpg files with actual dates.

    I never did manage to make the folders visible but did successfully navigate them and read the content.
    That would have been perfect for the OP'er if they still existed.

    Just for the sake of nostalgia, I found a reference to the hidden ms files here.
