If you like to reach downloaded episodes inside Ziepod, this build-in bin helps you with that. If it is enabled, Ziepod automatically keeps a pointer to downloaded episode inside 'Downloaded Episodes' bin.
This build-in bin comes in enabled mode. When you disable it, all downloaded episodes are kept as they are but pointers to those are deleted only. When you re-enable it via Preferences Dialog, Ziepod traverses all subscribed feeds and gathers pointers those those downloaded episodes. Keep in mind that that process may take time.
'Downloaded Episodes' bin is represented with ( ) icon in the folder hierarchy.
Note that status of episode being download is represented with ( ) icon and downloaded episode is represented with ( ) icon.
