Common Errors and How to Fix Them:

If the download did not completely download, and the files will not open:

If the download process does not go all the way through, then, the folder will not work properly.

This can be caused by a poor internet connection, or closing your internet browser too quickly during the download process. Any number of delays may cause the download to not come through.

When this happens, go back and try to download the files again, but make sure you have a strong internet connection before you begin.

If the downloaded files are lost on your computer:

The best way to make sure you do not lose the downloaded files on your computer during the download process is, to make sure you select exactly where you want your computer to save them.

One good solution is to save them to your desktop. From there, you may then move the files when you decide exactly where you want to put them.
