And how many users know how to copy items from their cache to their personal
folders? Very very few indeed. Most don't even know that they have cache or
what it is so I think Jay has a point. However as someone else already

Regardless what you write in your java script, all your photos will end up
there.  It is a simple matter to copy files from there to any directory you
want.  Have microsoft made this easier?  I think not.
