Hey there guys its me again having a weird problem about my external hard drive okay so this is what happened i was downloading a game of 1gbyte so what i did was go to my firefox tools and then go to options once there i changed my browse to my external hard drive (F) for my downloads and then i started to download the game so then when i finished downloading the whole game and i made sure the game was in my hard drive y decide to disconnect my external hard drive from my laptop so 10 minutes later when i just connected it again and i wanted to open my game i realized that it is gone i dont know how but it happened somehow so thought about it and i said alright im gonna test what i did before downloading something small and saving it into my external hard drive so thats what i did i downloaded a replay for my game warcraft III PG and a saved the replay into my external hard drive and guess what happened when i disconnected and i connected it again ? its gone again my replay its gone as same as happened to the game i downloaded here some pictures :

and here is how i changed my browser to my external hard drive

i think i shouldnt change the browser to my external hard drive im gonna try to change it back again and take the replay that i downloaded and put
it into my external hard drive and then see what happens when i disconnect and connect it again.
But in the meantime can u tell me if i can modify my external hard drive or something so i can downloading whatever i want and never have to worry about the missing of my files.
THank u guys have a great weekend. :)
