Joomla 3.3.6
IIS 7.5
PHP 5.5.9

RSFiles is setup to manage a folder called downloads off of Root (root/downloads). Most of the content in this folder is available to Everyone, with Admin having access to maintain the files and folders. At root/downloads we have a folder /staff, permissions here are limited to Admins and Staff to view or download. There is a file in here that if we search with Google, two valid links are returned. One is a direct link to the PDF in the folder root/downloads/staff/files/some.pdf, a link to the RSFiles download page is also returned, this is accessible to EVERYONE, and the download button works. These files/folders are not visible using RSFiles standard pages/modules within Joomla, so why is no security outside of Joomla applied?

I did select the Setting to "secure this folder" and renamed the htaccess file to web.config with no change.

Can you provide some documentation to assist with configuring RSFiles security on an IIS Server?

Thank you.
