If there are no files in the folder you created and they are not in your temporary internet files folder, then you must accept you don't have them and download them again.

Failing that, there's not much more we can do to to help you.

Your downloads are there. From now on use your user directory to save your downloads, there is a dedicated "Downloads" folder in your user directory.

Also stop the excessive use of the emote icons, its annoying.

Maybe they got "deleted" and are in recycler on that drive? They would take up physical space there, since they could theoreretically be restored from there. Have you checked your Recycle Bin?

What are the extensions of the files you believe you've put into the target folder?

Just to get yet one more view of that directory, have you tried going to a DOS command prompt, navigating (using the CD command) to the presumed target folder, and then typing DIR? Are there also zero files?

Maybe it's something you're doing in the download process itself that would explain where they really went... if not into the folder you think you're sending them to. Can you repeat the process for just one of these downloaded files, and take a screenshot of each dialog window as you go through it? If you post that sequence of steps we can probably provide a useful answer or suggestion.
