There are settings in P2P file sharing programs that allow for downloading files in the background. Some programs start the downloads automatically upon completion of your keyword search (some people aren't aware of this). If you close the P2P program, the download will stop; but the next time you start the P2P program, the download will resume where it was interupted.
To learn more about the files, tell us the full pathname of where the files are located.
What file extension is on the files (.mp3, .wmv, .ram, other)?
You also can open the folder(s) in which they are located and click View > Details. Right click on the folder column header (where it says Name, Size, Type, Date) to put checkmarks by other details you wish to display.
I learned a bunch of files, 79 to be exact, apparently were downloaded on to my girlfriends laptop
All were wmv files modified on the same day and within an hour of eachother, and varying in size from abou 7-11MB each.
My girlfriend I learned found these a while ago, and blamed me for the files. She decided to harbor hostile feelings toward me this whole time, while not bringing the issue to me.
I've actually never scene these before. And the time they were modified was too long ago for me to remember what exactly was going on that day.
My question is: Can I extract any more information out of these files so that I can at least attempt to defend myself, or learn more about how they came to be on the computer.
Any help would alleviate some undeserved stress from my life. Thank you.
