I'm not quite sure I understand what exactly your problem is... Are you saying you downloaded the files but you can't find them, even though you can see that they're taking up disk space...? If so, just use Windows' search function (:

yes you are right, i have downloaded all my files in folder named "new folder" but it's empty & they're taking disk space, earlier free space was 69gb now its 61gb & i can't find those files using search function, why search when i know i have downloaded those files to "new folder"

I would open up C: and start at the first folder and work your way til you find it. It`s gotta be in there somewhere.

I am always telling people, save it to your desktop, scan it, then put it where you want. Never fails.

Just to recap, if you downloaded any files and didn't choose Save As and point the download to the folder you named New Folder, the download should default to Computer>Downloads.

Where is your "new folder"? What drive/partition is it on? If you right click it and select properties what does it contain what's its size and location.
