5. Your recording will immediately start to download to your default download location (the Downloads folder, if you have not changed it).  If you want to put these on an external hard drive, you have two options:

Option A. Download all the files and transfer them to the external hard drive.

Option B. Temporarily set your web browser's default download location to be a folder on the external hard drive.
