    downloading? in what app? it may have been a streamed video, so when you closed safari, it would disappear.

    that app moves completed files, do a search for it.

    i know where it should be. i searched for it and can't find it. my hard drive space didn't decrease either. i may have canceled the download before it was completely finished. i know if you cancel downloads they disappear.

    You should check in the preferences and check to see where the app moves the completed files; it could have changed the folder to where it downloads them.

    or if you click remove in thinking it takes it off the list, that actually deletes it.

    If the download wasn't completed then it will be in a 'incomplete' folder or something like that. Anyway, have a look in the prefs because it says their where all the files go but yes it could be just deleted completely. :bomb:
