Digital Downloads

Host will not let me access a folder off the root for my purchased digital downloads. Is there a way to have it protected on the root of the server and still be accessible when need be? Their solution was to password protect the directory. Pretty bright on their part considering you can't access it then without inputing the username and password to do the download. Don't know what they were thinking. I am using Digital File Pro 2.

You could store the permissions that each user has in the database. Then on a protected page you would want to have a query that checks which files users have permission to download and then display links for the user to download them. This however wouldn't prevent the user from trying random links to download the other files that are in the directory.
