Hi alan27-ga, If you download a file directly to a portable USB drive (an external hard drive or flash memory device), that file is not also stored on the internal drive unless you take specific steps to do so (such as copying the file from the USB drive onto the internal drive). Having said that, there are situations where part or all of the contents may be copied to the internal drive during the normal operation of software applications. For example, if you have viewed a document from the USB drive on your web browser a copy of that document may be held in the browser cache (on the internal drive).
