You don't need to download a third-party cleaner in this instance. Disk Cleanup is built into the OS. Nevertheless, this answers the indirect question I had, since files in the Downloads folder could be deleted inadvertently as part of the Disk Cleanup process.

Another alternative to look at is Storage Sense. To do this, left-click on the Windows button and type the word storage. This will bring up a few options but the one you want to click on is Change how Storage Sense frees up space. It should bring up a window like the one shown below, so check to see if the Downloads folder is set to clear files out after X amount of days.
