  1. Permanent file loss in Downloads folder.


    Hello. This is Daniel here.


    And I'm in an urgent mood right now, because I was planning a Disk Cleanup for my Windows 10 computer, and when I selected the option to delete the downloaded files along with the temporary files, most of the files were "permanently" deleted from the Downloads folder, and I can't get them back. I really need a solution to this problem. What can I do to bring back the downloaded files? They were very important to me. Thanks in advance.

  2. Downloaded files disappear


    When you download a file through any browser, there's an option somewhere to 'Open Containing Folder.'

    In Windows, to find a file you have downloaded...

    1. Open your personal folder by clicking the Start button and then clicking your user name at the top of the Start menu's right pane.
    2. Double-click one of the following folders:
      • Downloads
      • Documents
      • Pictures
      • Videos
      • Music


    If you do not see the file you are looking for, but know its file name, you can search for it by following these steps:
    To search for a file you have downloaded...

    1. Click the Start button
    2. Type all or part of the file name into the Search box.
      The file you are looking for will appear in the list of results.
