Download Products Folder

Hey Ya'll -

 

I've searched the forums but didn't really find anything ... I'm sure this question has been asked and answered though ...

 

When using "downloadable products" ... I've got it working - but what's to keep a customer from learning the path to the download folder and just going via http: to the folder via the web browser and getting the product again?

 

For example, they say to create a folder called "storedownload" ... so the path is:

www.mystore.com/storedownload/filename.pdf

 

If I type this, I can get the file w/o paying - granted, you'd have to know the URL - but is there a better way to password protect the storedownload folder so that you can't browse it, but only access it through the links on the checkout page, or in the customer's account page?

 

Thanks in advance,

Fred
