  1. Losing Files


    Here's the problem.


    For some reason, Windows 10 deletes everything from my Explorer Downloads file save for my Kindle content file daily. Luckily, I have all my Downloaded information stored on a separate portable drive, but it's ridiculous that I have to reload all of my Downloaded program files every single day.


    I have Adaware Antivirus set up to automatically scan my computer every other evening, but the deletion occurs EVERY day, so I doubt my virus program is causing the problem.


    Any recommendations/suggestions are appreciated.

    :)

    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.

    Burning Files To cdr

    I tried to drag a .txt file to the burn list, as suggested above, but it will not drop in. I get a message "+add to burn list" but I cannot get it to drop into the burn list. Is there another step I am missing?
