      Sky Store Downloads

      Hi, does anyone know where sky store in windows saves its downloaded files? I bought something recently and thought they would ship the dvd as well like they used to. Now I have this downloaded file on my pc that I canít do much with.

      Probably could. The issue is I don't know where the file is stored. I'm confident I can work with it once I know where it is.

      Is it not listed in either Downloads or Recent files in file explorer?

      No it's not sadly. It's downloaded in the sky store programme. No idea where it saves its files.

      Assuming that it is definitely downloaded to you PC and not your Sky box can't you find it using the search function in file explorer using the file size or part of the file name.

      I've tried that already. Potentially there is something but it would mean the video file has been broken down into hundreds of pieces and the file extension is something opened by MS Access so it seems unlikley.
