I also have this problem "invalid download path". I download the same download address again, the link appears in the link collector, add it in Download despite "duplicated link", disable the old link (invalid download path) and start the new link, and it downloads! The problem: the file downloaded with the old link is lost! The new link also creates a new download directory! If someone can help me, please an explanation for "dummies".
