    Exclamation Download Disappearing!

    ok, first of all this has annoyed me..........

    I was using free download manager (FMD) to download a large file split up in to 200mb segments (not illegal, they were from vienna instuments) i had downloaded 3 gbs of the stuff. When i tried to open one of them, FMD shut down and all the files disappeared!

    After looking around my computer for a while i found these ISW files that were the right sizes.

    Found them here: C:\Users\olly\AppData\Roaming\#ISW.FS#\Normal

    With filenames like fffffffffffffa45.isw

    A bit of research led me to forcefield...

    I want these files back, is there anyway that this can happen? i don't want to download again (close to my quota for this month) and i need these files.

    I also checked recycle bin, scanned with a file undeleter (although not properly - is there any point?) and tried "Restore Folder to Previous Version" on the download folder.

    These files must be somewhere on my computer? surely? So just a little help please or tell me there's no point in trying to get them back.

    ok thanks, olly

    There is no way to recover files inside the Browser Security virtual file system.

    ZoneAlarm browser security incorporates virtualization technology, which creates a temporary, isolated area in which stealth attacks and junk are trapped and deleted without harming or cluttering your PC.

    e.g. As to where files need to be saved when using unattended downloads typically Download Managers.

    If using a download manager.Download to the "ForceField Shared Files" located in "C:\Users\username\Documents\ForceField Shared Files" (for VISTA) or C:\Document and Settings\username\MyDocuments\ForceField Shared Files" (in XP).

    Location for " ForceField Shared Files " in Windows 7 OS is the same as in Vista.

    Anything you choose to download can be saved to your computer.If you manually initiate the download files yourself, you are able to change the location to save them.

    You will be warned if ZoneAlarm browser security detects something dangerous about file you are attempting to download.
