  • No I move them from My Documents on another PC to my PC or download them from the internet to My Desktop. It doesn't always happen.

  • I'm sorry but that doesn't answer my question. This has to be happening for a reason. I'd like to know why and what it means. I do not use Bit Locker either. Thanks
