I figured my IE problem belonged here- even though it really isn't a problem-problem. You see, I was downloading a huge file via http (i.e. no resume) using my IE, and finally, after having downloaded it, it was 100% done. What I didn't know, was that it would do a "copying to .." thing and I accidently hit the spacebar, and i reckon i cancelled it. Now the file's not where I thought it should be (which is desktop) and I dont know if I've lost it completely, or can still save it. Anyone know where it went?

If its not in my computer/?drive/program files,I would try doing a search of the computer,using key words of the item you downloaded.Be sure and check "search hidden files and folders".

It might be in temporary files, especially if you haven't closed down or rebooted.
