      Hi Folks,   As you may have noticed if you're a regular visitor to our forums, things look a little different as our forums have just undergone a significant upgrade and now have a fresh new look!  We're aware that there are one or two little "niggles" with the upgrade that still need ironing out, but we're on the case, and normal service will be resumed shortly!   In the meantime, if you've got a problem with a BitTorrent product, but are unable to post about it in the forums, you can also find support via the following links: BitTorrent Client Help Center BitTorrent Sync Help Center BitTorrent Bundle Help Center BitTorrent Bleep Help Center   Thank you for your patience as we work to improve your forum experience! UPDATE: 1st Feb - We're currently investigating issues with notifications - earlier issues that may have been preventing some users from logging in have now been resolved.

I'm pretty sure downloads just go there by default when your downloads directery is unavailable. Which could be due to numerous reasons. Like an external HD if you normally save to one not being connected, being full or many other reasons. While it is possible the problem resulted from an attack, lets not jump to conclusions. Just go through and check your default directories in your settings and make sure there available first.
