Using the F5 Key or View > Refresh to View the Most Recent Content

Especially important if you are picking up a file that was delivered for you. It can take a few minutes for the file that was delivered for you via the upload section to appear in the download section. If the file that you are expecting in the download section is not visible, press browser refresh or the F5 key about once per minute to refresh the view. If you do not refresh the view once you've connected you will not know when the file has finally arrived in the download section.
