Default Downloaded Files Auto Deleting

Within 24 hours of downloading a file it is deleted from my Download Folder.
I have tried every type of file and they keep being deleted from the Download Folder.

Anybody know why this happens and is there a way to turn this off?

Thanks

I take it you're on stock ROM? I used it for all of an hour before I went into flashaholic mode, so I'm not too sure.

I do know the stock ROM has a built in file manager though. Could you try moving your downloaded files into different folders? I know it's not really a fix, but it might be a convenient work around... And it'll promote keeping a clean file system for various types of files you download.

I am rooted but on the stock Odex base but use Solid Explorer as my File Manager.
As far as work around goes I have to move the files out of the Download Folder otherwise they are deleted.
