Partial download still on system?

  MickinPlymouthUK 03:51 19 Jun 06

I started downloading a free video to my desktop but after 22Mb had loaded I got fed up of waiting and cancelled before the download was completed.
I then went to desktop to delete the 22Mb but it wasn't there.
What's happened to it, I mean I don't want 22Mb of valuable hard drive space taken up by it?

Check your recycle bin. It may have auto deleted itself into there, as the download process was prematurely terminated.

Sometimes a download needs to be completed before the necessary "indexing" and paths are set.
In that event the data will be on the disk but inaccessable.
No point in searching ever more closely, the space will be overwritten anyway sooner or later.
