A while ago, I received an email with an image in the message body. It was attached via URL source. I have read that message on my Android device and saw the image there as well. When I go to the mail now, the image no longer loads - it has been taken down, the URL doesn't work anymore. I need to gain access to that image.

I imagine the Gmail app stores data (even temporarily) somewhere on the device, so I'm looking for a way to extract that image. Here's what I've found so far.

I'm browsing my phone internal memory via my laptop. I have show hidden files option enabled.

Android/data/com.google.android.gm/files is empty.

Android/data/com.google.android.gm/cache has several files like these:

1e4d24dc66d8c27bcfe49ac8c74d285d    2107KB
2b04c4c91cdd6f9507d3b40dca0fce31    10522KB
2fb23268fce84c1fb85382eb0d5fbc7e    10410KB

I'm pretty sure the answer lies somewhere in these files. Anyone know a way to extract data from them?
