Which folder do downloads default to?

I downloaded a torrent file from firefox and all it says was "save to disk". But where? Very annoying.
I've looked in my downloads and desktop but its not there. Can anyone help?

Look in the options of your torrent client, it'll give you the download folder in there.

within firefox
tools>options>main>check your downloads save to location.

Do a Files and Folders search from Start>Search>Files and Folders.

Create a folder or folders in Program Files and, using Browse, direct any download to a chosen folder. This will also act as a backup for a file or files if required.

Otherwise, IIRC, the Default destination is the Desktop.

Thanks, but I still couldn't find it. Did a search and it said the file was in: /Document and setttings/Administrator/Recent, but there is no folder called Recent in Administrator.

I downloaded it again and this time it gave me an option to choose where to save the file.
