Default Missing downloads

Over the past few days our downloads keeps dissappearing from our Explora. We have wasted over 15Gb.

What gives?

Expiry dates ? You'll have to be a bit more specific as to which downloads though...

Do you switch your router off daily (say - at night)?

A very important consideration is to note that because CU content and BO content does NOT reflect in the list, it does NOT mean the downloads are not still there and intact.
Yes expired content will not show in the list. The key problem is the service authentication system that breaks down, thus not showing the content lists and NOT because the content has been wiped off the HDD.

Please give enough detail.
What needs to be understood first is what you mean by this - every few hours / days do they disappear and then reappear (in which case it's related to what Geoff D posted), or do the downloads you have done / redone then vanish permanently?
It sounds like the latter to me as you say you have wasted over 15GB?
Or are you perhaps losing the first part of downloads and needing to start again?

Please also mention if this is the original Explora I or the new Explora 2A.
