At the moment I know my files are secure because their filenames are md5, Id love to see you try and guess one :-) However using your method it wouldnt be so secure for my data. The filename could be guessed easily and downloaded directly much more easier.

But like I said, storing all the files on your own server quickly becomes impractical in terms of server space, and in terms of bandwidth. Suppose I want to put up Windows 2000 SP4 for download, I don't think I'm even allowed by Microsoft to load it on my server. So I would have to specify it's URL directly.

Ah remote storage. Kind of enters into the dodgy area of bandwidth stealing from others servers wink

Im sure it will work out in the end smile
