    Hi i have a Samsung a 6 plus and i updated the system yesterday and it was okay for like less then an hour after that i noticed that the song i was listening stopped,so i went to my music library (the Samsung music app) and found out 200 of my songs were gone and a bunch of my pictures as well. Then i noticed that if i try to save anything from google ,if i try to download a picture or a song it says its downloaded ,however its no where to be seen,i went through recently downloaded files through every folder in my internal storage through my sd card storage etc but they are nowhere,i restarted my phone a couple times and cleared my preferred apps and then restarted it again but it didnt help it still does the same thing(also im sorry for my English)

    Where you downloading the pictures? Chrome?

    Make sure your permissions are set for storage.

    Welcome!
    I have followed your instructions here but I still cannot find my files. In my case everything downloads to the download folder except pdf files. They open from the notification but if I close them, they are no where to be found.

    Any help you can give would be very appreciated

    I tried that just the word first and then added the period. No result. Its almost as if they dont actually get saved anywhere but of course I know better. I even allowed for system files to show on search but still nothing ;(

    Which app are you using to download these files? The Google search app? An email app?
