This sounds like the age old problem of downloading data and not knowing where it went! I train users on how to use their computer better, which includes taking charge of downloads. There are 3 main computer browsers: (1) IE, (2) Firefox, and (3) Google Chrome. Both 1&2 were originally made for computers, and both have the capability of asking you where to save your download each and every time. With Firefox you may need to make a setting, but IE come that way by default. BUT Chrome was made for smart phone and tablets, and is very limited in what you can do with it. I am assuming you are using Chrome.

So, you can change its default folder where it puts data you download (c\users\your PC name\downloads in the Windows folders area). Click on the orange exclamation mark in the top right and go into 'Settings'. Then slide the bar all the way to the bottom and click on 'Advanced'. Then slide the bar down to the 'Downloads' section, and either (1) clock on 'Change' to set your own folder as the repository, or (2) slide the button to the right to turn on 'Ask where to save each file before downloading'.
