Downloads and folder missing after 6.1.0 update

Postby kittrell87 » Sun Oct 21, 2018 7:25 pm

I recently updated to version 6.1.0 and the shortcut on my desktop with all of my previously downloaded movies is empty. If I search for the movie within "recents" in my computer, I can click on it but it gives an error saying it can't find it. Have I lost all of my movies or do I just not know how to find them?

Have you unselected checkmark `Clear cache folder on exit` in app Settings?
Have you tried to go to Downloads folder (by default located at C:\Users\YourUser\Downloads\PopcornTime)?
Or try to find such folder if you have changed default location of the Downloads cache folder in previous app version.

As I understand all downloaded by the app stuff located in that folder, which means if there are no any files - probably they were erased. If so I would like to recommend you use some recovery tools to get your data back (if it was really important for you).
