Re: How to find downloaded files location

Generally, when you download files, before the download starts, it will ask for a location to save. This is a default option for Microsoft's Internet Explorer and many browser. Mozilla just asks to save or open and downloads everything on the Desktop. Well are you using any download accelerators that may save folders in different locations, general locations are c:\downloads\ or c:\documents and settings\user\my documents\downloads\ or c:\documents and settings\user\downloads\
There is nothing i could thing of other then this. And yes, also check the temporary folders.

Re: How to find downloaded files location

I would recommend you to use Window's Files and folders search, Select all the local hard disks, from advanced options, select searching from hidded files and folders and if you know the extension of the files search by full file name with extension. If you have downloaded the file, you will surely get those from your computer...
