If an iconik asset has multiple instances of a file in the specified download location(s), paths to each will be displayed in the item view:
In this case, revealing the downloaded asset in finder will show the first listed instance of the asset, so in the above case _iconik DL > To Download > Pages of Content > Insta.
It is important to keep in mind that the more downloads you allow at once in the Preferences, the more taxing the app can be on your internet bandwidth.
The default simultaneous download number is 4, and it is recommended to keep this number low when dealing with large files like video or high resolution images images.
If you have assets from prior to May 2021, you will need to reindex your system to allow the Transfer app to download these items.
The Setup page will recognize this, and show the message below:
