You may like to decide where you will save the content that you download from the Data Archive (rather than allowing the Chrome browser to decide for you). To configure your Chrome browser so that you may decide where to download folders and files:

  • Go to the Chrome browser settings.
  • In the new, Settings, browser tab which opens, scroll down to Show advanced settings...
  • Click on Show advanced settings..., scroll down to the Downloads section and check the option 'Ask where to save each file before downloading' check box.
  • Close the Settings browser tab and your changes will be saved.
