G8 Randomly Deletes Downloads.

2020-01-24, 10:08 AM

My G8 is bizarrely deleting downloads. I've been listening to downloaded TV shows in bed and it randomly deletes a bunch of files. Some seem permanent fixtures, but if I download a few episodes, I'll find a day or three later it will randomly delete a load of them.

Very odd. Anyone else experienced this?

Some dowloaded video/files have encryption that will delete themselves or make them unuseable after a certain period. This is part of Copyright protection. This might be what is happening.

 

You could try moving/copying the files to another folder or device and then deleting the Download folder they go to by default. It will be re-created or make a new one yourself and may have become corrupted.

 

HTH :)
