Short answer: download files onto a USB flash drive, not onto the laptop itself.
Long answer: the PCs (Dells) will not permit you to download any files onto the laptop itself, but some Macs permit limited, temporary file downloading onto the laptop. However, these files are deleted periodically for security reasons, so to make sure you do not lose your file accidentally, download onto a USB flash drive instead.
